This is not a method that is intended for use. Rather it is part of a documented, functional example of how to integrate a third-party optimization library. It takes an initial point, generates a list of random parameter values, evaluates the function at each point in the list, and returns the point with the lowest function value.

Documented instructions on how to integrate a third-party library, working source code, and build infrastructure can be found in $dakotaSource/packages/external/demo_tpl. Additionally, integration instructions can be found in the Developers Manual.
