## Sum Squares Function

### Description:

*Dimensions: d*

The Sum Squares function, also referred to as the Axis Parallel Hyper-Ellipsoid function, has no local minimum except the global one. It is continuous, convex and unimodal. It is shown here in its two-dimensional form.

### Input Domain:

The function is usually evaluated on the hypercube x_{i}∈ [-10, 10], for all i = 1, …, d, although this may be restricted to the hypercube x

_{i}∈ [-5.12, 5.12], for all i = 1, …, d.

### Global Minimum:
