nonblocking


Evaluate points in the pattern until an improving point is found

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Description

In the nonblocking case, all points in the pattern may not be evaluated. The first improving point found becomes the next iterate. Since the algorithm steps will be subject to parallel timing variabilities, these runs will not generally be repeatable.
