A dificulty with optimization is determining if a given minimum is the best (global) minimum or a suboptimal one (local).
Finding the min. of a nonlinear fct. is especially difficult. Typical approaches to highly nonlinear problems involve either linearizing the problem in a very confined region or restricting the opimization to a small region. In short, we cheat.
