Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to solve the following problem using Mathematica:

I have (defined) a surface of two variables, say f(a,b). Now I want to

plot a path (a line) that corresponds to min[f(a,b)] starting from

certain valus of a and b (say a0,b0). In other words the path always proceeds through

the minimum of f(a,b), starting from f(a0,b0), but it should be continuous(!).

I will apreceate very very much any hint how to do it in Mathematica.

Many thanks!

Best,

Evgeniy
