I have trouble understanding the cyclic coordinate method. How does it differ with the Hook and Jeeves method and the Rosenbrock method?

From a past exam text:

Describe the cyclic coordinate method and outline the similarities and the differences between the Cyclic Coordinate method, the Hooke and Jeeves method, and the Rosenbrock method.

I would appreciate a good reference, I'm having trouble finding any.

it seems like you need something like a numerical recipes book, or Bertekas's nonlinear optimization book –  Suresh May 6 '12 at 18:59
