optimtool help
Posted:
Feb 1, 2011 4:23 AM


Hi, sorry if this is not the place to post my problem. I have an overdetermined system of equations representing a nonlinear system and I thought if I could formulate the problem as an optimization one, then I could use matlab's "fmtool" to solve it.
My function is describes as:
A_1 = sqrt((A_2^2)/4 + (1/(B^2))*(PO)^2)) + sqrt(A_2^2)/4 + (1/(B^2))*(P+O)^2))
I have "A_1", "P" and "O", and need to find (optimize) "A_2" and "B".
How do I write the objective function and the constraints (I don't have any) ? I find the help section in matlab a bit inadequate and thin.
Thanks,
Kamran
