The optimizers module: optimization of the model

The optimizers module provides a number of methods to optimize a model. The molecular pdf is optimized with respect to the selected coordinates, and the optimized coordinates are returned.

These optimizers are often used to implement the variable target function method, for example in the automodel and loopmodel classes. See Section 6.12 for an example.
