Required/Optional Description of Group Dakota Keyword Dakota Keyword Description
Optional percent_change Define the convergence criterion for JEGA methods
Optional num_generations Define the convergence criterion for JEGA methods


The convergence_type called average_fitness_tracker keeps track of the average fitness in a population. If this average fitness does not change more than percent_change over some number of generations, num_generations, then the solution is reported as converged and the algorithm terminates.
