Stopping criterion based on volume of search space


Alias: none

Argument(s): REAL

Default: 1.0e-6


volume_boxsize_limit is a setting that terminates the optimization when the volume of a hyperrectangle S with f(c(S)) = fmin is less than volume_boxsize_limit percent of the original hyperrectangle. Basically, volume_boxsize_limit stops the optimization when the volume of the particular rectangle which has fmin is less than a certain percentage of the whole volume.
