LevenbergMarquardtOptimizer: able to customize convergence condition

                 Key: MATH-427
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Christiaan

Currently it is not possible to customize the condition for exiting the iterations in the
doOptimize() of LevenbergMarquardtOptimizer. I ran into the scenario where the following condition
was already met after 2 iterations, however in this scenario a better result could be achieved
after 118 iterations:

Current condition:
                // tests for convergence.
                if (((Math.abs(actRed) <= costRelativeTolerance) &&
                        (preRed <= costRelativeTolerance) &&
                        (ratio <= 2.0)) ||
                        (delta <= parRelativeTolerance * xNorm)) {
                    return new VectorialPointValuePair(point, objective);

Preferred condition:
delta <= 2.2204e-16 * xNorm

Eg. if code is put in a protected method convergenceCondition() then LevenbergMarquardtOptimizer
could be subclassed to customize this behaviour.
