Argument  Description  Used by Functions 

A, b  The matrix 

Aeq, beq  The matrix 

C, d  The matrix  
f  The vector of coefficients for the linear term in the
linear equation  
fun  The function to be optimized.

x0  Starting point (a scalar, vector or matrix). (For  All functions except 
x1, x2  The interval over which the function is minimized.
