Abstract: In this presentation, I will discuss the Conjugate Gradient Algorithm. I will motivate the algorithm by comparing it to the Steepest Descent. I will discuss the Steepest Descent Algorithm and, through an example, show how the solution is found. Next, I will briefly explain the convergence of the Steepest Descent. Lastly , I will discuss the Conjugate Gradient Method.
