I am trying to minimize a function using scipy.optimize.minimize(). Below is the piece of code which I am trying to execute.

When I execute the same I am getting

NameError: name 'j' is not defined

import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from scipy.optimize import minimize
from sklearn.metrics import r2_score

url = 'test_data.txt'
z = pd.read_csv(url)
e1 = z['strain'].values
sigx = z['stress'].values
#print (sig1)

def sig2(e):
    return np.mean((sig1-(j[0]*np.power(e,j[1])))*(sig1-(j[0]*np.power(e,j[1]))))
print (sig2(e))

res= minimize(sig2,j)

What I expect as the outcome was values of j[0] & j[1] to get the function value (sig2) to be near to zero
