The "method of steepest descent" is a numerical method. To find a minimum for f(x,y), starting at , find the direction of and move a short distance in that direction. Repeat until is short enough.
For this problem, and at (6, 3), that is . Just to make it "small" let's multiply that by, say, .1 to get . We want to move from (6, 3) in the opposite direction from that so subtract (1.2, .22) from (6, 3) to get (4.8, 2.78). Now repeat. Find at that point and subtract.
can you please tell me if my results are correct?
I found a=0.488 and x1=[0.144;-0.2208], a=0.466 and x2=[0.00979;0.00556]
, and a=0.4863 x3=[0.000268;-0.000388] can youi please just check theses results cause i am not sure. and i stop here i don't know if i must go on and do it again. Thank you
