Hi Daniel, I understand what u want to say. In other words, do u think that is not one of inconvenient of Mathematica??? Thanks.

That is, for different x, you h= ave different DE. Therefore, you can not numerically pre-solve the DE. That= would only be possible if you were able to symbolically solve the DE with = x a parameter.

Do you t= hinks that there is a problem of REevaluate of Ndsolve 1000 times? so what = i want to do is to compute f[x] One time for All in the constraints. Do u t= hinks that i can do it in Mathematica? Another system can do something like that bu= t i dont see how with Mathematica, and i need Mathematica to solve my probl= em. > > Thanks for your help. > > Anh. > > --- On *Tue, 6/16/09, dh /<dh at metrohm.com>/* wrote: > > > From: dh <dh at metrohm.com> > Subject: Re: Problem of NUMERICAL constraints (Ndsolve) with = Nminimize > To: "Anh Ngoc LAI" <laianhngoc at yahoo.com> > Date: Tuesday, June 16, 2009, 7:10 AM > > Hi, > I still not sure what you try to do.
