Hello Alan thank u for the answer , i saw the documentation but it seems not possible to call the ga with f = @(x)parameterfun(x,a,b,c) i must call the fminunc function [x,fval] = fminunc(f,x0) :-/ :-(

I'm sorry, I do not understand you. It is indeed possible to call the fitnes function with f = @(x)parameterfun(x,a,b,c). If you want more help, you will need to provide more information. Specifically:
1. Your function signature (function f = parameterfun(x,a,b))
2. Your calling syntax (x = ga(f,n,A,b))
3. All output MATLAB gives. I mean all, not an edited version.
