Get Started with Optimize Live Editor Task
This example script helps you to use the Optimize Live Editor task for optimization or equation solving. Modify the script for your own problem.
The script solves a nonlinear optimization problem with nonlinear constraints.
Include Parameters or Data
Typically, you have data or values to pass to the solver. Place those values in the input section (where you see
x0) and run the section by choosing Section > Run Section or pressing
Set the initial point
x0 and scale
a for the optimization.
x0 = [2;1]; a = 100;
x0 value and any other problem data into the workspace by running this section before proceeding.
Optimize Live Editor Task
This task has objective and nonlinear constraint functions included. To change these functions, edit the function listings below the task.
To change the constraints, select appropriate constraint types and enter values in the input boxes. You might need to enter values in the section containing
x0 above, and run the section to put values in the workspace.
Run the task by clicking the striped bar to the left, or by choosing Run or Section > Run Section, or by pressing
Optimize saves the solution to the workspace variable
solution, and saves the objective function value at the solution to the workspace variable
objectiveValue. You can see and modify these variable names at the top of the
View these variables.
View the nonlinear constraint function values at the solution.
Helper Functions — Local Functions
The following code creates the objective function. Modify this code for your problem.
function f = objectiveFcn(x,a) f = a*(x(2) - x(1)^2)^2 + (1 - x(1))^2; end
The following code creates the constraint function. Modify this code for your problem.
function [c,ceq] = constraintFcn(x) c(1) = x(1)^2 + x(2)^2 - 5; c(2) = 3 - x(1)^2 - x(2)^2; ceq = ; % No equality constraints end
