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

Hi,
sorry if this is not the place to post my problem.
I have an over-determined system of equations representing a non-linear
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))*(P-O)^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
