solution_target


Specifies a globally optimal value toward which the optimizer should track

Specification

Alias: solution_accuracy

Argument(s): REAL

Default: 0

Description

The solution target specifies a goal toward which the optimizer should track.

This is used for test problems, when the true global minimum is known (call it solution_target := fglobal). Then, the optimization terminates when 100(f_min-fglobal)/max(1,abs(fglobal) < convergence_tolerance. The default for fglobal is -1.0e100 and the default for convergence tolerance is described at convergence_tolerance.
