# Description and Features

• The function is continuous.
• The function is not convex.
• The function is defined on 3-dimensional space.
• The function is multimodal.
• The function is differentiable.
• The function is non-separable.

# Input Domain

The function can be defined on any input domain but it is usually evaluated on $x_i \in [0, 2]$ for $i=1, …, 3$.

# Global Minima

The global minima $f(\textbf{x}^{\ast})=0$ are located at $\mathbf{x^\ast}=(0, 0, 0)$.

# Implementation

An implementation of the Wolfe Function with MATLAB is provided below.

The function can be represented in Latex as follows:
