[Doku]class POWELL(SciPyOptimizer):
"""
Powell optimizer.

The Powell algorithm performs unconstrained optimization; it ignores bounds or
constraints. Powell is a *conjugate direction method*: it performs sequential one-dimensional
minimization along each directional vector, which is updated at
each iteration of the main minimization loop. The function being minimized need not be
differentiable, and no derivatives are taken.

Uses scipy.optimize.minimize Powell.
