# 3.12. Minimization styles¶

Classes that perform energy minimization derived from the Min class. New styles can be created to add new minimization algorithms to LAMMPS.

Min_cg.cpp is an example of conjugate gradient minimization.

Here is a brief description of methods you define in your new derived class. See min.h for details.

 init initialize the minimization before a run run perform the minimization memory_usage tally of memory usage
