Hi, I would like to ask how to use Conjugate Gradient Method on nonquadratic function, x, y \in R^n f(x,y) = cos(x) + y^2 + y^4 When does the algorithm work and when does it fail, according to first approximation? I know the algorithm theory for quadratic function (rewrite the function as 1/2 x^T Qx + b^T x + c, where Q is symmetric, positive definite matrix, and then find alpha_k, h_k, and beta_k which lead to next approximation). I thank you a lot, in advance !!
