### Optimizing complicated function

Hey do you guys know of any tool that can help me optimize a rather complicated function?

Here is the exact function...

...and I need to find its global MINIMA (the max is part of the function) subject to:

Hi;

Mathematica can do it but I do not understand what you are asking so I am unable to use it.

You can try mathematica.stackexchange.com/

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Oops sorry, I just need to find

such that the function is minimized. Also, I forgot to add
in the constrains. Here are the constrains for copy-pasting:

Here is the exact function..

I hope this makes the problem more readable.

I think you might be confusing things even more. The max function is part of the function. Should I say:

and I need to minimize S?

Hi;

Do you know what the answer is? I was unable to find a nice closed form but I have a good numerical value and a bound if needed.

Oops no I have no idea about the answer (that's why I posted the question in the first place) Numerical values would be nice...

### Re: Optimizing complicated function

I expected it to be around 25...

Thanks for the number to 20 places, but I really would have needed just 4 places. What about the

s? Actually, they might be more valuable for me...

### Re: Optimizing complicated function

Thanks for the numbers. No

? This could potentially mean oversimplification of the original problem... (which is err my problem)

You could force a B2 by changing the constraint to B2 > 0.

### Re: Optimizing complicated function

Nope that's not it. Either I have mismodeled my problem, or the optimal solution wasn't as I had expected.
