3.11. Minimization styles

Classes that perform energy minimization derived from the Min class. New styles can be created to add new minimization algorithms to LAMMPS.

Min_cg.cpp is an example of conjugate gradient minimization.

Here is a brief description of methods you define in your new derived class. See min.h for details.

init

initialize the minimization before a run

run

perform the minimization

memory_usage

tally of memory usage
