A conjugate direction optimization method is performed by using sequential line search along directions that bear a strict mathematical relationship to one another.
The Fletcher-Reeves method is a variant of the Conjugate-Gradient method.
Powell's algorithm, starting from an initial point, performs a series of line searches in one iteration.
Zangwill's algorithm is an improved version of Powell's algorithm.
