void  writeFormat (FileStorage &fs) const 
Basic interface for all solvers.
Getter for the optimized function.
The optimized function is represented by Function interface, which requires derivatives to implement the sole method calc(double*) to evaluate the function.

pure virtual 
Getter for the previously set terminal criteria for this algorithm.

pure virtual 
actually runs the algorithm and performs the minimization.
The sole input parameter determines the centroid of the starting simplex (roughly, it tells where to start), all the others (terminal criteria, initial step, function to be minimized) are supposed to be set via the setters before the call to this method or the default values (not always sensible) will be used.
x  The initial point, that will become a centroid of an initial simplex. After the algorithm will terminate, it will be setted to the point where the algorithm stops, the point of possible minimum. 
Setter for the optimized function.
It should be called at least once before the call to* minimize(), as default value is not usable.
f  The new function to optimize. 

pure virtual 
Set terminal criteria for solver.
This method is not necessary to be called before the first call to minimize(), as the default value is sensible.
Algorithm stops when the number of function evaluations done exceeds termcrit.maxCount, when the function values at the vertices of simplex are within termcrit.epsilon range or simplex becomes so small that it can enclosed in a box with termcrit.epsilon sides, whatever comes first.
termcrit  Terminal criteria to be used, represented as cv::TermCriteria structure.
