My goal is to write a function for the Globally Converging Newton's method to find the minimum of the function f. This is what I have for my code; I think my issue lies in the while loop possibly but I'm pretty new to MATLAB and not wonderful at it so any advice/help would be really great!
function [min] = GCNewtons(x0)
f = @(x) exp(2*sin(x)) - x;
g = @(x) (2*exp(2*sin(x))*cos(x)) - 1;
h = @(x) (-2*exp(2*sin(x)))*(sin(x)-2*cos(x)^2);
tol = 10^-6;
x = x0;
for k = 1:50
while abs(g(x)) >= tol
y = x - (g(x) / h(x));
if f(y) < f(x)
min = y;
else
%Backtracking
if g(x) < 0
xtest = x + ((abs(y - x)) / 2);
while f(xtest) >= f(x)
xtest = (x + xtest) / 2;
end
else
xtest = x - ((abs(y - x)) / 2);
while f(xtest) >= f(x)
xtest = (x + xtest) / 2;
end
end
min = xtest;
end
end
end
end

Julia - the above code may be overcomplicating Newton's Method. I think the code is trying to only allow for 50 iterations (due to the for loop) but then has an unneeded while loop (plus a couple of others for the "backtracking"). You may want to start with a simpler algorithm and then decide if the backtracking is needed. Also, while you calculate y on each iteration, you don't use it on subsequent ones (you probably want to be setting the result to x to instead so that it changes on each iteration).
I think the above could be simplified to
function [min] = GCNewtons(x0)
f = @(x) exp(2*sin(x)) - x;
g = @(x) (2*exp(2*sin(x))*cos(x)) - 1;
h = @(x) (-2*exp(2*sin(x)))*(sin(x)-2*cos(x)^2);
tol = 10^-6;
x = x0;
for k = 1:50
x = x - (g(x) / h(x));
% add any tolerance checks here
end
min = 0; % what should this be?
end
I've left the tolerance checks and the assignment of min to you. I'm assuming that h is the correct derivative of g.

hmm..ok. So how should the xtest be used on each iteration (if backtracking)? How should min be used? Or should the new x (on subsequent iterations) be that min?
