I would like to use the simplex algorithm to find the minimum of a
(rather complicated) function with 2 variables using the simplex
algorithm.  Another system uses it as a general minimization algorithm rath=
than for linear programming.  Mathematica uses ConstrainedMin, but I
would like to program it from scratch.  Do you know of any book where i
can find it?

Any help will be appreciated!

With kind regards,
