According to a theorem of Remez,
is guaranteed to
increase *monotonically* each iteration, ultimately converging to
its optimal value. This value is reached when all the extremal
frequencies are found. In practice, numerical round-off error may
cause
not to increase monotonically. When this is detected,
the algorithm normally halts and reports a failure to converge.
Convergence failure is common in practice for FIR filters having more
than 300 or so taps and stringent design specifications (such as very
narrow pass-bands). Further details on Remez exchange are given
in [224, p. 136].

As a result of the non-iterative internal LP solution on each
iteration, `firpm` cannot be used when additional constraints
are added, such as those to be discussed in the following sections.
In such cases, a more general LP solver such as `linprog` must
be used. Recent advances in convex optimization enable faster solution
of much larger problems [22].
