 * This interface represents an optimization algorithm for linear problems.
 * <p>Optimization algorithms find the input point set that either {@link GoalType
 * maximize or minimize} an objective function. In the linear case the form of
 * the function is restricted to
 * <pre>
 * c<sub>1x1 + ... cnxn = v
 * </pre>
 * and there may be linear constraints too, of one of the forms:
 * <ul>
 *   <li>c1x1 + ... cnxn = v
 *   <li>c1x1 + ... cnxn <= v
 *   <li>c1x1 + ... cnxn >= v
 *   <li>l1x1 + ... lnxn + lcst =
 *       r<sub>1x1 + ... rnxn + rcst
 *   <li>l1x1 + ... lnxn + lcst <=
 *       r<sub>1x1 + ... rnxn + rcst
 *   <li>l1x1 + ... lnxn + lcst >=
 *       r<sub>1x1 + ... rnxn + rcst
 * </ul>
 * where the c<sub>i, li or ri are the coefficients of
 * the constraints, the x<sub>i are the coordinates of the current point and
 * v is the value of the constraint.
