java.lang.Object  +optimization.Uncmin_f77
This class contains Java translations of the UNCMIN unconstrained optimization routines. See R.B. Schnabel, J.E. Koontz, and B.E. Weiss, A Modular System of Algorithms for Unconstrained Minimization, Report CUCS24082, Comp. Sci. Dept., University of Colorado at Boulder, 1982.
IMPORTANT: The "_f77" suffixes indicate that these routines use FORTRAN style indexing. For example, you will see
for (i = 1; i <= n; i++)rather than
for (i = 0; i < n; i++)To use the "_f77" routines you will have to declare your vectors and matrices to be one element larger (e.g., v[101] rather than v[100], and a[101][101] rather than a[100][100]), and you will have to fill elements 1 through n rather than elements 0 through n  1. Versions of these programs that use C/Java style indexing will eventually be available. They will end with the suffix "_j".
This class was translated by a statistician from a FORTRAN version of UNCMIN. It is NOT an official translation. It wastes memory by failing to use the first elements of vectors. When public domain Java optimization routines become available from the people who produced UNCMIN, then THE CODE PRODUCED BY THE NUMERICAL ANALYSTS SHOULD BE USED.
Meanwhile, if you have suggestions for improving this code, please contact Steve Verrill at steve@ws13.fpl.fs.fed.us.

public static void optif0_f77(int n, double[] x, Uncmin_methods minclass, double[] xpls, double[] fpls, double[] gpls, int[] itrmcd, double[][] a, double[] udiag)
The optif0_f77 method minimizes a smooth nonlinear function of n variables. A method that computes the function value at any point must be supplied. (See Uncmin_methods.java and UncminTest.java.) Derivative values are not required. The optif0_f77 method provides the simplest user access to the UNCMIN minimization routines. Without a recompile, the user has no control over options. For details, see the Schnabel et al reference and the comments in the code. Translated by Steve Verrill, August 4, 1998.

 A class that implements the Uncmin_methods
interface (see the definition in

example of such a class. The class must define:
1.) a method, f_to_minimize, to minimize.
f_to_minimize must have the form
public static double f_to_minimize(double x[])
where x is the vector of arguments to the function
and the return value is the value of the function
evaluated at x.
2.) a method, gradient, that has the form
public static void gradient(double x[],

where g is the gradient of f evaluated at x. This
method will have an empty body if the user
does not wish to provide an analytic estimate
of the gradient.
3.) a method, hessian, that has the form
public static void hessian(double x[],

where h is the Hessian of f evaluated at x. This
method will have an empty body if the user
does not wish to provide an analytic estimate
of the Hessian. If the user wants Uncmin

interface (see the definition in
Uncmin_methods.java). See UncminTest_f77.java for an
example of such a class. The class must define:
1.) a method, f_to_minimize, to minimize.
f_to_minimize must have the form
public static double f_to_minimize(double x[])
where x is the vector of arguments to the function
and the return value is the value of the function
evaluated at x.
2.) a method, gradient, that has the form
public static void gradient(double x[],
double g[])
where g is the gradient of f evaluated at x. This
method will have an empty body if the user
does not wish to provide an analytic estimate
of the gradient.
3.) a method, hessian, that has the form
public static void hessian(double x[],
double h[][])
where h is the Hessian of f evaluated at x. This
method will have an empty body if the user
does not wish to provide an analytic estimate
of the Hessian. If the user wants Uncmin
to check the Hessian, then the hessian method
should only fill the lower triangle (and diagonal)

3.) a method, hessian, that has the form
public static void hessian(double x[],
double h[][])
where h is the Hessian of f evaluated at x. This
method will have an empty body if the user
does not wish to provide an analytic estimate
of the Hessian. If the user wants Uncmin
to check the Hessian, then the hessian method
should only fill the lower triangle (and diagonal)
of h.sc
