Abstract : A COMPARISON IS MADE BETWEEN THE METHODS OF PARALLEL TANGENTS AND STEEPEST DESCENT AT THE FIRST POINT AT WHICH THEY DO NOT COINCIDE, NAMELY P4. These resul s can be used to obtain an idea of the performance of the method of parallel tangents for the determination of the minimum of any unknown regression function and of the method of conjugate gradients for the numerical solution of linear systems.
