blocking


Evaluate all points in a pattern

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Description

In the blocking case, all points in the pattern are evaluated (in parallel), and if the best of these trial points is an improving point, then it becomes the next iterate. These runs are reproducible, assuming use of the same seed in the stochastic case.
