I would like to >fix x after getting out the value of x at different results of fmin. Yes, it is possible to use the result. For example, consider: In[1]:= min = {2.4, {x -> 0.2}}; x^2 - 1 /. Last@min Out[2]= -0.96 Or In[3]:= 2 x/.Last@min Out[3]= 0.4 -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
