Re: Optimization

I wanna say thanks for your previos help, Mr McCann and I have other questions.

If I have several constraint functions, g1,g2,, which are nonlinear function,
how should i rewrite the function in scipad so I could use the 'optim' function ?

should I reform the several constraint functions to be single matrix and linearize the entries contained nonlinear form with Taylor series ?

         I'm just investigating Scilab. I did one or two NL 
optimizations in Matlab using fminunc() with a penalty function. 
Without having done it, it looks as if optim() in Scilab is the 
answer because it allows constraints to be specified.
