<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmin_005ffminimizer_005falloc"></a>Function: <em>gsl_min_fminimizer *</em> <strong>gsl_min_fminimizer_alloc</strong> <em>(const gsl_min_fminimizer_type * <var>T</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><a name="index-gsl_005fmin_005ffminimizer"></a>
<a name="index-gsl_005fmin_005ffminimizer_005ftype"></a>
<p>This function returns a pointer to a newly allocated instance of a
minimizer of type <var>T</var>.  For example, the following code
creates an instance of a golden section minimizer,
</p>
<div class="example">
<pre class="example">const gsl_min_fminimizer_type * T 
  = gsl_min_fminimizer_goldensection;
gsl_min_fminimizer * s 
  = gsl_min_fminimizer_alloc (T);
</pre></div>

<p>If there is insufficient memory to create the minimizer then the function
returns a null pointer and the error handler is invoked with an error
code of <code>GSL_ENOMEM</code>.
</p></dd></dl>

<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmin_005ffminimizer_005fset"></a>Function: <em>int</em> <strong>gsl_min_fminimizer_set</strong> <em>(gsl_min_fminimizer * <var>s</var>, gsl_function * <var>f</var>, double <var>x_minimum</var>, double <var>x_lower</var>, double <var>x_upper</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>This function sets, or resets, an existing minimizer <var>s</var> to use the
function <var>f</var> and the initial search interval [<var>x_lower</var>,
<var>x_upper</var>], with a guess for the location of the minimum
<var>x_minimum</var>.
</p>
<p>If the interval given does not contain a minimum, then the function
returns an error code of <code>GSL_EINVAL</code>.
</p></dd></dl>

<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmin_005ffminimizer_005fset_005fwith_005fvalues"></a>Function: <em>int</em> <strong>gsl_min_fminimizer_set_with_values</strong> <em>(gsl_min_fminimizer * <var>s</var>, gsl_function * <var>f</var>, double <var>x_minimum</var>, double <var>f_minimum</var>, double <var>x_lower</var>, double <var>f_lower</var>, double <var>x_upper</var>, double <var>f_upper</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>This function is equivalent to <code>gsl_min_fminimizer_set</code> but uses
the values <var>f_minimum</var>, <var>f_lower</var> and <var>f_upper</var> instead of
computing <code>f(x_minimum)</code>, <code>f(x_lower)</code> and <code>f(x_upper)</code>.
</p></dd></dl>


<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmin_005ffminimizer_005ffree"></a>Function: <em>void</em> <strong>gsl_min_fminimizer_free</strong> <em>(gsl_min_fminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>This function frees all the memory associated with the minimizer
<var>s</var>.
</p></dd></dl>

<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmin_005ffminimizer_005fname"></a>Function: <em>const char *</em> <strong>gsl_min_fminimizer_name</strong> <em>(const gsl_min_fminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>This function returns a pointer to the name of the minimizer.  For example,
</p>
<div class="example">
<pre class="example">printf (&quot;s is a '%s' minimizer\n&quot;,
        gsl_min_fminimizer_name (s));
</pre></div>

<p>would print something like <code>s is a 'brent' minimizer</code>.
</p></dd></dl>
