These are animations1 showing the search path uk  on top of a contour plot from different starting point u0   toward a minimizer u∗ for different objective functions using different algorithms. More animations will be added.

The animation run once and stop. To re-start the animation, please force reload the HTML page (using shift-reload).

1 First example                     2                       2
f (u ) = (11− u1 − u2) + (1 + u1 + 10u2 − u1u2 )
2 second example, Rosenbrock's banana function f(u ) = 100 ∗(u2 − u21)2 + (1− u1 )2
