I would like to calculate the minimum of the function using the steepest descent method. I am, however, stuck at determining the step size. I want to calculate the step size using golden ratio, however, as I have only use the method in 1 dimension, I don't know how to use it here. Here is what I did so far:

Step 1: Choose starting points. These were given already as

Step 2: Calculate the gradient . I did this and got . Substituting for the starting points , we get

Step 3: Calculate .

I am stuck at step 3. I don't know how I can get . If there is a possibility to use the golden ratio to determine alpha here, I would welcome. Any help in explaining it is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
