math_Powell (const math_MultipleVarFunction &theFunction, const Standard_Real theTolerance, const Standard_Integer theNbIterations=200, const Standard_Real theZEPS=1.0e12)  
Constructor. Initialize new entity. More...  
virtual  ~math_Powell () 
Destructor. More...  
void  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  Fi1) =< Tolerance * (abs(Fi) + abs(Fi1) + ZEPS). More...  
virtual Standard_Boolean  IsSolutionReached (math_MultipleVarFunction &theFunction) 
Solution F = Fi is found when: 2.0 * abs(Fi  Fi1) <= Tolerance * (abs(Fi) + abs(Fi1)) + ZEPS. The maximum number of iterations allowed is given by NbIterations. More...  
Standard_Boolean  IsDone () const 
Returns true if the computations are successful, otherwise returns false. More...  
const math_Vector &  Location () const 
returns the location vector of the minimum. Exception NotDone is raised if the minimum was not found. More...  
void  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. More...  
Standard_Real  Minimum () const 
Returns the value of the minimum. Exception NotDone is raised if the minimum was not found. More...  
Standard_Integer  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. More...  
void  Dump (Standard_OStream &o) const 
Prints information on the current state of the object. Is used to redefine the operator <<. More...
