Detailed Description

View in nbviewer Open in SWAN Example on how to use the new Minimizer class in ROOT Show usage with all the possible minimizers.

Minimize the Rosenbrock function (a 2D -function) This example is described also in http://root.cern.ch/drupal/content/numerical-minimization#multidim_minim input : minimizer name + algorithm name randomSeed: = <0 : fixed value: 0 random with seed 0; >0 random with given seed
