Rob Tompkins updated MATH-1394:
    Fix Version/s: 4.X

> Implementation of DIRECT global optimizer
> -----------------------------------------
>                 Key: MATH-1394
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons Math
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 3.5, 3.6
>            Reporter: Burton Patkau
>             Fix For: 4.X
> An open source implementation of the DIRECT global optimizer, described by Jones, Perttunen
and Stuckmann, implementing math3.optim.nonlinear.scalar.MultivariateOptimizer, is available
as at
 There are also three variants of the algorithm on that page: DIRECT_L_Optimizer implements
DIRECT-L by Gablonsky and Kelley, DIRECT1Optimizer changes which sides are chosen for dividing,
and DIRECTCOptimizer adds alternative ways to select potentially-optimal hyperrectangles.
> DIRECT is not as fast as BOBYQA, but is better at finding a global minimum in a field
of many local minima.
> JUnit tests for all of these, using standard optimizer test functions, are available
