In this paper, we first present a concise representation of multivariate polynomial, based on which we deduce the calculation formulae of its derivatives using tensor. Then, we propose a solution method to determine a global descent direction for the minimization of general normal polynomial. At a local and non-global maximizer or saddle point, we could use this method to get a global descent direction of the objective function. By using the global descent direction, we can transform an $n$-dimensional optimization problem into a one-dimensional one. Based on some efficient algorithms for one dimensional global optimization, we develop an algorithm to compute the global minimizer of normal multivariate polynomial. Numerical examples show that the proposed algorithm is promising.
