topology


In this selection strategy, we use information about the topology of the space from the Morse-Smale complex to identify next points to select.

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Description

In this strategy we look at the topology of the scoring function and select the n highest maxima in the topology. To determine local maxima, we construct the approximate Morse-Smale complex. This strategy does require the user to have the Morse-Smale package.
