Description

In the collaborative approach, multiple methods work together and share solutions while executing concurrently. A list of method strings specifies the pool of iterators to be used. Any number of iterators may be specified. The method collaboration logic follows that of either the Agent-Based Optimization or HOPSPACK codes and is currently under development and not available at this time.
