View Full Version : Optimisation

03-08-2007, 09:09 PM
Dear All,

I have a question concerning the mathematics of optimisation. I am attempting to find the minimum energy in a network of springs that compose a 2-D muscle model and am using Matlab's fmincon to perform the optimisation. Unfortunately this takes too much time. I am interested in finding other methods of performing this specific optimisation that perhaps do not require the use of a general/slow solver like fmincon. Any help would be greatly appreciated,
