Abstract : The Goldstein-Price method for obtaining the global unconstrained minimizer of a general function of several variables is shown to require obtaining a local solution of at most summation, i=1 to n-1, f((n-i)Pi(y=1 to i)(n-j)) one dimensional unconstrained minimization problems when applied to a polynomial of a single variable of degree 2n.
