208 5. OPTIMIZATION AND RELATED NUMERICAL SCHEMES idea in simplex method is to evaluate f ( x ) at ( n +1) vertices of a simplex and use this information to move towards the optimum. Let x ( m ) be such that (9.4) x ( m ) = max i (1 , .... n +1) f ( x ( i ) ) and x ( c ) represent centroid of the remaining points de f ned as (9.5) x ( c ) = 1 n n +1 X i =1 ,i 6 = m x ( i ) Then, we f nd a new point x ( new ) new such that by moving in direction of x ( c ) x ( m ) as follows (9.6) x ( new ) = x ( m ) + λ ¡ x ( c ) x ( m ) ¢ Thecho iceo f λ =1 x ( new ) = x ( c ) and λ =0 x ( new ) = x ( m ) . In order to maintain the regularity of simplex, the re F ection should be symmetric and λ =2 is selected for achieving symmetry. The property of simplex used by algorithm is that a new simplex- can be generated on any face of the old one
