I am using Method -> "QuasiNewton" with FindMinimum. I specify the
Gradient but not the Hessian. Can I have FindMinimum return the
inverse Hessian it has accumulated when it completes its
The implementation notes indicated BFGS is used for QuasiNewton. I
would like to use the inverse Hessian to get an idea of how stable the
fitted parameters are around the minimum. I would also like to use it
to fudge together the minima from running FindMinimum in batch
across several machines using the parallel computing toolkit.
I don't think this is possible or desirable - I'm just messing around.
I looked through the docs and the source for
Optimization`UnconstrainedProblems` and didn't find anything, well,
other than some good programming pointers.
Any suggestions or general guidance would be cool.
