# st: how to search the optimal parameter

 From econqian222 To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject st: how to search the optimal parameter Date Wed, 2 May 2012 12:42:11 -0700 (PDT)

```Hi,everyone
I'm searching for an optimal value of "a" belong to the scale [1.05,
131.5] at interval that is 0.05, “b" belong to the scale of [0, (a-1)/a] at
interval that is (a-1)/30a
To minimize the sum of "u^2" by each value of code(1,2,3,4,...), where
u=y-ax1-bx2, we need to search the optimal value of "a" and "b" within their
respective scale and interval for each value of code(1,2,3,4,...).
How should I write the program for this task?

the format of data goes as following:
code	   y	           x1	          x2
1	4.65605	.7904362	-1.918414
1	8.55465	.388749	-1.823626

4	.1192554	.3238932	-.196535
4	71.84912	.3888368	5.285602
.	.	             .   	.
