[SciPy-User] maximization functions
Thu Oct 22 19:03:37 CDT 2009
Hello again Robert;
And thanks for that response! Hope it's not asking for too much "hand
holding," since I don't quite understand it yet, but would you maybe offer
an example of what and how exactly to call from scipy if I have a function
to MAXimize that takes one variable (direct parabolic interpolation)
say between 0 and 1 with a precision of 0.01 up to 100 iterations?

To convert a maximization problem to a minimization problem:
"I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless
enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as
though it had an underlying truth."
