bfgs_minimization

**This is an old revision of the document!**

it call l-bfgs-b routine till: - the convergence criteria defined in cg.optional are reached (f(i,j)<fmax for all i,j) - the algorithm is not able to find the smaller energy in spite of f>fmax - the maximum number of steps exceeds

iquench = -5 nstepf = 1000 ! ! Max number of opt steps, default value = 100 dt = 0.5 !/only if FIRE minimization is used - last parameter in cgopt.optional >0/

This routine uses the same input file as Conjiged Gradients (iquench = -4). It does not use all parameters, but they must be there.

0.1 ! NOT USED in BFGS 0.1 ! NOT USED in BFGS 0.00000001 ! NOT USED in BFGS (total energy tolerance ) 0.001 ! fmax - force tolerance - end of minimization if fij<fmax 10000 ! NOT MORE USED IN BFGS (Max number of opt steps) - now the max. number of steps is given by parameter nstepf in firaball.in 0 ! number of restarts in case ftot>fmax (it seems it nave no effect) 0 ! if >0 then dt must be defined in fireball.in. Number of FIRE downhill steps after BFGS minimization "fails"
