Back to Physics 212, 2018: Computational Modeling.

Why is fitting hard: Large dimensionality, multiple minima, flat regions. What is the maximum accuracy of optimization?

For future lectures, start reading:

In the class lectures for this module, we will talk about the following methods:

Your turn
Write down a parabolic interpolation or Newton method minimizer of 1-d functions. Minimize a using your minimizer. Do you get the expected result?
