 * Available choices of update formulas for the ? parameter
 * in {@link NonLinearConjugateGradientOptimizer}.
 * <p>
 * The ? parameter is used to compute the successive conjugate
 * search directions. For non-linear conjugate gradients, there are
 * two formulas to compute ?:
 * <ul>
 *   <li>Fletcher-Reeves formula
 *   <li>Polak-Ribière formula
 * </ul>
 * On the one hand, the Fletcher-Reeves formula is guaranteed to converge
 * if the start point is close enough of the optimum whether the
 * Polak-Ribière formula may not converge in rare cases. On the
 * other hand, the Polak-Ribière formula is often faster when it
 * does converge. Polak-Ribière is often used.
