Minimum-finding routines (which is what Nelder-Mead/downhill-simplex is) are generally poorly suited to finding zeros of equation systems — if you add the squares of all equations, you get many spurious local minima in addition to the global minimum corresponding to the zero (assuming your equations have a unique zero). If you can't afford to evaluate the ...
