## Member Function Documentation

 void math_Powell::Dump ( Standard_OStream & o ) const

Prints information on the current state of the object. Is used to redefine the operator <<.

 Standard_Boolean math_Powell::IsDone ( ) const

Returns true if the computations are successful, otherwise returns false.

 virtual Standard_Boolean math_Powell::IsSolutionReached ( math_MultipleVarFunction & theFunction )
virtual

Solution F = Fi is found when: 2.0 * abs(Fi - Fi-1) <= Tolerance * (abs(Fi) + abs(Fi-1)) + ZEPS. The maximum number of iterations allowed is given by NbIterations.

 const math_Vector& math_Powell::Location ( ) const

returns the location vector of the minimum. Exception NotDone is raised if the minimum was not found.

 void math_Powell::Location ( math_Vector & Loc ) const

outputs the location vector of the minimum in Loc. Exception NotDone is raised if the minimum was not found. Exception DimensionError is raised if the range of Loc is not equal to the range of the StartingPoint.

 Standard_Real math_Powell::Minimum ( ) const

Returns the value of the minimum. Exception NotDone is raised if the minimum was not found.

 Standard_Integer math_Powell::NbIterations ( ) const

Returns the number of iterations really done during the computation of the minimum. Exception NotDone is raised if the minimum was not found.

 void math_Powell::Perform ( math_MultipleVarFunction & theFunction, const math_Vector & theStartingPoint, const math_Matrix & theStartingDirections )

Computes Powell minimization on the function F given theStartingPoint, and an initial matrix theStartingDirection whose columns contain the initial set of directions. The solution F = Fi is found when: 2.0 * abs(Fi - Fi-1) =< Tolerance * (abs(Fi) + abs(Fi-1) + ZEPS).
