      • RealVectorInitializer

        public RealVectorInitializer​(int n,
                                     double a,
                                     double b)
        Construct a RealVectorInitializer that generates random solutions such that the values of all n variables are chosen uniformly in the interval [a, b). The RealVector objects returned by the createCandidateSolution() method are otherwise unbounded (i.e., future mutations may alter the values such that it leaves that interval). Use a different constructor if you need to enforce bounds.
        Parameters:
        n - The number of input variables for the function.
        a - The lower end of the interval (inclusive).
        b - The upper end of the interval (exclusive).
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if a ≥ b
        NegativeArraySizeException - if n < 0
      • RealVectorInitializer

        public RealVectorInitializer​(double[] a,
                                     double[] b)
        Construct a RealVectorInitializer that generates random solutions such that the values of variable i is chosen uniformly in the interval [a[i], b[i]). The RealVector objects returned by the createCandidateSolution() method are otherwise unbounded (i.e., future mutations may alter the values such that it leaves that interval). Use a different constructor if you need to enforce bounds.
        Parameters:
        a - An array of the left points of the intervals, inclusive. The length of this array corresponds to the number of input variables for the function you are optimizing. Variable x[i]'s initial value will be at least a[i].
        b - An array of the right points of the intervals, exclusive. The length of this array corresponds to the number of input variables for the function you are optimizing. Variable x[i]'s initial value will be less than b[i].
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if the lengths of a and b are different, or if there exists an i, such that a[i] ≥ b[i].

        Construct a RealVectorInitializer that generates random solutions such that the values of all n variables are chosen uniformly in the interval [a, b), subject to bounds [min, max]. If this constructor is used, then the createCandidateSolution() method will return an object of a subclass of RealVector, which will enforce the constraint that the values of the function inputs must remain in the interval [min, max] as mutation and other operators are applied.
        Parameters:
        n - The number of input variables for the function.
        a - The lower end of the interval (inclusive).
        b - The upper end of the interval (exclusive).
        min - Lower bound on allowed values for the function inputs generated.
        max - Upper bound on allowed values for the function inputs generated.
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if a ≥ b or if min > max
        NegativeArraySizeException - if n < 0

      • split

        public RealVectorInitializer split()
        Description copied from interface: Splittable
        Generates a functionally identical copy of this object, for use in multithreaded implementations of search algorithms. The state of the object that is returned may or may not be identical to that of the original. Thus, this is a distinct concept from the functionality of the Copyable interface. Classes that implement this interface must ensure that the object returned performs the same functionality, and that it does not share any state data that would be either unsafe or inefficient for concurrent access by multiple threads. The split method is allowed to simply return the this reference, provided that it is both safe and efficient for multiple threads to share a single copy of the Splittable object. The intention is to provide a multithreaded search with the capability to provide spawned threads with their own distinct search operators. Such multithreaded algorithms can call the split method for each thread it spawns to generate a functionally identical copy of the operator, but with independent state.
        Specified by:
        split in interface Splittable<Initializer<RealVector>>
        Returns:
        A functionally identical copy of the object, or a reference to this if it is both safe and efficient for multiple threads to share a single instance of this Splittable object.
