Original Message (ID '117537') By Bill Simpson:
To restrict the domain to 0,1 see what happens if you add a constraint x*(x-1)==0 for all your variables x. That appears to work for the small example I tried. In[1]:= NMinimize[{a*3+(b-2)*2,a*(a-1)==0&&b*(b-1)==0&&a+b==1},{a,b}] Out[1]= {-2.0000, {a->-1.8626*^-9, b->1.0000}}
