I would like some help with a problem I'm facing using mathematica to
model chemical kinetics. The specific question is about the use of
FindRoot and FindMinimum. In the code attached I am trying to solve an
non linear equation (blue) using FindRoot inside a FindMinimum loop (to
fit 3 differents constant). As I am not successuful with the
implementaion I wondering if FindRoot can be used insde FindMinimum. Is
that possible? Can anyone can help.
