(PARTAN). An algorithm developed from the zigzag phenomenon observed using Cauchy's steepest descent. It takes two gradient steps, then performs a line search on the line through the first and last points LaTeX: \textstyle (x^{k+2} - x^k). (For a quadratic objective, PARTAN is equivalent to the conjugate gradient method.)
