Optimization using newton's method gradient hessian

  1. Apr 17, 2015 #1

    This is my first post here. So I hope I'm posting in the right place, sorry if not.

    I am trying to solve the following numerical optimization function using Netwon's Method:

    So, if I have the gradient of a function f(x) in xk=(1, -2) and also the hessian at the same point, how can I calculate which is the quadratic aproximation of this function using Newton's method multivariate.
