Hello,

I have an interpolating function for a solution to a differential equation and I want to find an absolute minimum on an interval.

Currently, I use FindMinimum and test a lot of points in that interval and then compare the resulting points.

Is there a better way to go about this? Currently, my approach takes a lot of time and is not very reliable.

NMinimize doesn't seem to like interpolating functions.

Any help would be appreciated.
