distance


Space filling metric

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Description

The distance metric calculates the Euclidean distance in domain space between the candidate and its nearest neighbor in the set of points already evaluated on the true model. Therefore, the most undersampled area of the domain will always be selected. Note that this is a space-filling metric.
