 Author Comment/Response jf 05/24/13 2:56pm Any hints what ObsNumber and medianOF are? If ObsNumber is a scalar number and medianOF is a polynomial, then Minimize could find the global minimum. Finding a Global minimum numerically is a hard problem. The better the initial values, the better. (Strictly speaking, NMinimize can take an initial range.) In[2]:= NMinimize[Cos[x]/(1 + Exp[x]), x] Out[2]= {-0.061331, {x -> 2.39958}} In[3]:= NMinimize[Cos[x]/(1 + Exp[x]), {x, -2, 2}] Out[3]= {-0.959368, {x -> -3.18144}} URL: ,
