Anyone know the formula to find the minimum distance from the origin to the curve, and find that point on the curve that is the minimum distance from the origin.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is for a programming problem in MATLAB, so thanks for any help!!!

EDIT: By the way, I don't know the points on the curve, so i need to minimize the distance using points that i need to determine.
