I have a requirement that, I use the following modified Rosenbrock function,
where the coefficients |a| and |b| are to be read from a text file.
I tried the following,
function out = rosenbrock(x) disp('rosenbrock()..........called'); coeff = load('coeff.txt'); a = coeff(1); b = coeff(2); xx = x(1); yy = x(2); out = (1 - xx + a)^2 + 100*(yy - b - (xx-a)^2)^2; end
But it is doing two things,
(1) Slowing down the performance of the optimization.
(2) The output is also not correct (the optimization isn't converging).
How can I solve this issue wile fulfilling my requirement?
Is it possible to pass the values of |a| and |b| as the arguments of |rosenbrockwithgrad()|?
I have tried the following,
rosenbrockwithgrad_p = @(x)[rosenbrock(x, a, b); (nargout > 1) * gradient(x)]; % calling fminunc [x, fval, eflag, output] = fminunc(@rosenbrockwithgrad_p, x0, options);
It doesn't work.
