Urgent Optimization problem

The problem is minimization of an error function with 24 constants(should be found by optimization) and 1 variable.

Error(a11,b11,d11,a12,b12,d12,a13,b13,d13,a22,b22, d22,a23,b23,d23,a33,b33,d33,a66,b66,d66,a77,b77,d7 7,eps)

So I want to find constant aij,bij and dij so that Error(eps) is minimum when 0<eps<0.1(at any eps), Is it possible to optimize this using Mathcad? If not would you please help me which math tool could possibly minimize this?
Thank you

Re: Urgent Optimization problem

If you look in your manual for Mathcad, or you Google for Mathcad Users Guide, you see that Mathcad has "Solve Blocks" that can include Minimize and Maximize.

If I understand your question, I believe what you want to find are the coefficients such that the largest possible Error(eps) with 0<eps<0.1 is minimized.

I think that using either one or two Solve Blocks to find the minimum maximum may solve your problem.

But without having any idea what your error function is it will be very difficult to say any more than that.
