The Nelder-Mead algorithm should not be confused with the (probably) more famous simplex algorithm of Dantzig for linear pro-gramming. The Nelder-Mead algorithm is especially popular in the elds of chemistry chemical engineering and medicine. Two measures of the ubiquity of the Nelder-Mead algorithm are that it

• Provides xplicit support for bound constraints using essentially the method proposed in Box . Whenever a new point would lie outside the bound constraints the point is moved back exactly onto the constraint. References. J. A. Nelder and R.

9 nvergent variants of the Nelder-Mead method have been proposed (e.g. David Byatt 2000 and Tseng 2001). 10.Using the Nelder-Mead method to converge in the general region of a precise solution before switching to a gradient-based method such as sequential quadratic programming (SQP) has been shown to work well.

• The Nelder-mead simplex algorithm is a very popular algorithm for unconstrained optimization. Unfortunately it suffers from serious convergence problems which are more pronounced for higher-dimensional problems 1 but also occur at lower dimensions (e.g. McKinnon function with n=2) 2 .

• Instead of using gradient information Nelder-Mead is a direct search method. It keeps track of the function value at a number of points in the search space. Together the points form a simplex. Given a simplex we can perform one of four actions reflect expand contract or shrink.
