Limit number of iterations w/ little improvement


  • Alias: None

  • Arguments: INTEGER

  • Default: 5


soft_convergence_limit (a soft convergence control for the surrogate_based_local iterations which limits the number of consecutive iterations with improvement less than the convergence tolerance). soft_convergence>1 counts an iteration in which a design point was rejected as an iteration with no improvement. Setting soft_convergence=1 ignores iterations involving rejected points, instead comparing only consecutive iterations of accepted points.
