However, the lack of zoning is common for most protected areas in developing countries and, as a consequence, many protected areas are not effective in achieving the goals for which they were created. In this work, we introduce a quantitative method to expeditiously zone(More)
Finite dimensional unconstrained minimization problems are generally solved by iterative methods like Newton, quasi-Newton, steepest descent, conjugate gradient methods and its variations. All of them share the same property: they are descent methods. In 1988 Barzilai and Borwein introduce the spectral gradient method which have been analyzed by Raydán in(More)
