Despite checking for quite some time online and in the docu, I cannot find an "easy" way to get the covariance matrix from FindMinimum.
When FindMinimum has reached the local minimum, it returns the set of best fit parameters, however, in order to access the uncertainties in those, one needs the covariance matrix at this point.
It seems to me like an obvious problem that many people must have encountered before.
Also, I cannot easily re-cast the problem into the form for NonlinearModelFit, since it is a more complicated chi^2 function and structured data I try to minimize.
Thanks for any help!
