Is non linear, but works well with conjugate gradient and central derivative methods on other software, which just do not have the necessary precision.
Is there something similar in PariGP?
The "solver" function seems to work only with one parameter.
Please, do not ask for more specific details about the function. This is a general question.Tue, 21 Apr 2015 14:06:22 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26616/solver-for-multiple-variable/Answer by marraco for <p>I have a function which depends of multiple parameters, and I need to find the parameters that minimize some error function.</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26616/solver-for-multiple-variable/?answer=26793#post-id-26793Thanks!
I was told that it is not possible in PariGP, so I gave up, and just today I found your answer.
Hope it works.Mon, 11 May 2015 05:40:14 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26616/solver-for-multiple-variable/?answer=26793#post-id-26793Answer by calc314 for <p>I have a function which depends of multiple parameters, and I need to find the parameters that minimize some error function.</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26616/solver-for-multiple-variable/?answer=26625#post-id-26625You can use `scipy` for this. See https://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.optimize.minimize.html#scipy.optimize.minimize.
Here is an outline of some code.
from scipy import optimize
def err(params,F):
...
return result
optimize.minimize(err,[initial values],args=(...))
