minFunc is a Matlab function for unconstrained optimization of differentiable real-valued multivariate functions using line-search methods. It uses an interface very similar to the Matlab Optimization Toolbox function fminunc, and can be called as a replacement for this function. On many problems, minFunc requires fewer function evaluations to converge than fminunc (or minimize.m). Further it can optimize problems with a much larger number of variables (fminunc is restricted to several thousand variables), and uses a line search that is robust to several common function pathologies.
