 Author Comment/Response Oleg Urminsky 01/30/02 10:17pm I'm using FindMinimum in the form: FindMimimum[f,{x,{x1,x2}}] because f does not have symbolic derivatives. Mathematic returns answers in the form: {minimumf, {{0,.01,.1,.5,.9,.99}-> minimizingx}} Where minimumf and minimizingx are the actual values. My question is, how can I extract minimizingx as a value for future calculations. I figured out how to extract minimumf, as the first element in the list. But the second element in the list is the entire "rule", and I can't find a way to just get at the value of x that minimizes the fundtion. Thank you!! - Oleg URL: ,
