disp : bool

Set to True to print convergence messages.

xtol : float

Relative error in solution xopt acceptable for convergence.

ftol : float

Relative error in fun(xopt) acceptable for convergence.

maxiter, maxfev : int

Maximum allowed number of iterations and function evaluations. Will default to N*1000, 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.

direc : ndarray

Initial set of direction vectors for the Powell method.
