Hey guys!.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to use this method of minimization.

The procedure to follow is explained here:

However, I do not fully understand. What do I have to do?

What I got from the paper is that I only have to minimize the equation 15.7.16, by using bisection. With this I am supposed to obtain the parameter b, whilst "a" would be got by means of 15.7.15 once the former is minimized and we know the true b.

Then, do I not have to do anything with 15.7.14?

Is it correct what I stated of how to perform the method or I am mistaken?

Thank you all!
