Subject [math] Monitoring iterative algorithms
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2011 18:52:18 GMT
a useful feature for *any* iterative algorithm would be the
possibility to call a "monitor" at the end of each iteration. What
would this monitor do would pretty much depend on the user's mood:
periodically backup the state of the algorithm (in order to restart it
in case of a crash), log a set of tabulated values (to plot the
convergence of the algorithm), ...
The idea would be to come up with a design as general as possible.
Gilles proposed (see MATH-581) to use java.util.Observable. This
sounds very attractive to me. Any comments?
