The Nelder-Mead algorithm should not be confused with the (probably) more famous simplex algorithm of Dantzig for linear pro-gramming. The Nelder-Mead algorithm is especially popular in the elds of chemistry chemical engineering and medicine. Two measures of the ubiquity of the Nelder-Mead algorithm are that it
