disp : bool

Set to True to print convergence messages.

maxiter, maxfev : int

Maximum allowed number of iterations and function evaluations. Will default to N*200, where N is the number of variables, if neither maxiter or maxfev is set. If both maxiter and maxfev are set, minimization will stop at the first reached.

initial_simplex : array_like of shape (N + 1, N)

Initial simplex. If given, overrides x0. initial_simplex[j,:] should contain the coordinates of the j-th vertex of the N+1 vertices in the simplex, where N is the dimension.

xatol : float, optional

Absolute error in xopt between iterations that is acceptable for convergence.

fatol : number, optional

Absolute error in func(xopt) between iterations that is acceptable for convergence.
