<p>The following function drives the iteration of each algorithm.  The
function performs one iteration to update the state of the minimizer.
The same function works for all minimizers so that different methods can
be substituted at runtime without modifications to the code.
</p>
<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffdfminimizer_005fiterate"></a>Function: <em>int</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer_iterate</strong> <em>(gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffminimizer_005fiterate"></a>Function: <em>int</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fminimizer_iterate</strong> <em>(gsl_multimin_fminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>These functions perform a single iteration of the minimizer <var>s</var>.
If the iteration encounters an unexpected problem then an error code
will be returned.  The error code <code>GSL_ENOPROG</code> signifies that
the minimizer is unable to improve on its current estimate, either due
to numerical difficulty or because a genuine local minimum has been
reached.
</p></dd></dl>

<p>The minimizer maintains a current best estimate of the minimum at all
times.  This information can be accessed with the following auxiliary
functions,
</p>
<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffdfminimizer_005fx"></a>Function: <em>gsl_vector *</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer_x</strong> <em>(const gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffminimizer_005fx"></a>Function: <em>gsl_vector *</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fminimizer_x</strong> <em>(const gsl_multimin_fminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffdfminimizer_005fminimum"></a>Function: <em>double</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer_minimum</strong> <em>(const gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffminimizer_005fminimum"></a>Function: <em>double</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fminimizer_minimum</strong> <em>(const gsl_multimin_fminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffdfminimizer_005fgradient"></a>Function: <em>gsl_vector *</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer_gradient</strong> <em>(const gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffdfminimizer_005fdx"></a>Function: <em>gsl_vector *</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer_dx</strong> <em>(const gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffminimizer_005fsize"></a>Function: <em>double</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fminimizer_size</strong> <em>(const gsl_multimin_fminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>These functions return the current best estimate of the location of the
minimum, the value of the function at that point, its gradient, the last
step increment of the estimate, and minimizer specific characteristic size for the minimizer <var>s</var>.
</p></dd></dl>

<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fmultimin_005ffdfminimizer_005frestart"></a>Function: <em>int</em> <strong>gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer_restart</strong> <em>(gsl_multimin_fdfminimizer * <var>s</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>This function resets the minimizer <var>s</var> to use the current point as a
new starting point.
</p></dd></dl>
