Thanks Alan for your response.Actually there are 4 variables but in fmincon it asks for initial value to start but I do not know the starting value at all say for example iI give the starting value as [-1.9,501,44,201].It returns the same value as the result.Is there any method through which I can find the starting value for the objective function I gave?I simply can't guess the value.Another problem is that this problem of getting the initial value is repeated in simulated annealing method also what ever the initial value I give I get the same answer as result but Genetic Algorithm gives entirely a different actually I've modified the objective function as:


for this function only the above stated error of getting the initial value in result occurs..
