    datatype_icon

    line minimization

    Value that determines whether this node uses the derivatives in the algorithm.

    Name Value Description
    Without Derivatives 0 Does not use the derivatives in the algorithm.
    With Derivatives 1 Uses the derivatives in the algorithm.

    Default: Without Derivatives

    datatype_icon

    gradient method

    Algorithm this node uses to compute the derivatives.

    Name Value Description
    Fletcher-Reeves 0 Uses the Fletcher-Reeves method.
    Polak-Ribiere 1 Uses the Polak-Ribiere method.

    Default: Fletcher-Reeves

    datatype_icon

    objective function

    Formula that defines the objective function. The formula can contain any number of valid variables

    Entering Valid Variables

    This node accepts variables that use the following format rule: variables must start with a letter or an underscore followed by any number of alphanumeric characters or underscores.

    datatype_icon

    variables

    Names of the variables.

    Variable names must start with a letter or an underscore followed by any number of alphanumeric characters or underscores.

    datatype_icon

    start

    Point in n dimension at which the optimization starts.

    datatype_icon

    end

    Point in n dimension at which the optimization ends.

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    accuracy

    Accuracy of the minimum of the objective function.

    Default: 1E-08

    datatype_icon

    number of trials

    Number of the randomly chosen start points of the optimization. These points belong to the interval (start, end).

    Default: 5

    datatype_icon

    minima

    Determined values of the variables where the objective function has the local minimum value. Each row contains n elements that represent the values of the n variables.

    The values are an approximation of the variables where the objective function has the local minimum value.

    datatype_icon

    f(minima)

    Values of the objective function at each row of minima.

    The values are an approximation of the actual minimum value of the objective function.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
