In the multidimensional optimization methods described so far, the direction of search in each iteration depends on the local properties of the objective function. Although a relation may exist between successive search directions, such a relation is incidental. In this chapter, methods are described in which the optimization is performed by using sequential search directions that bear a strict mathematical relationship to one another. An important class of methods of this type is a class based on a set of search directions known as conjugate directions.
