PowellMinimizerMinimize Method (DoubleFunctional, DoubleVector)

Minimizes the given function near the given starting point.

Namespace:  CenterSpace.NMath.Core
Assembly:  NMath (in NMath.dll) Version: 7.3
Syntax
public DoubleVector Minimize(
	DoubleFunctional f,
	DoubleVector x
)

Parameters

f
Type: CenterSpace.NMath.CoreDoubleFunctional
The function to minimize.
x
Type: CenterSpace.NMath.CoreDoubleVector
The starting point.

Return Value

Type: DoubleVector
The local minimum of function near the point, p.

Implements

IMultiVariableMinimizerMinimize(DoubleFunctional, DoubleVector)
Remarks
The minimization will use the unit vectors for the starting directions. Iteration stops when either the estimated error is less than the tolerance, or the maximum number of iterations is reached. Setting the error tolerance to less than zero ensures that the maximum number of iterations is always reached.
