Solvers

This module contains a collection of optimization that use map-reduce to distribute several optimizer instances over parameter space. Each solver accepts a imported solver object as the "nested" solver, which becomes the target of the map function.

The set of solvers built on mystic's AbstractNestdSolver are:

  BatchGridSolver -- start from center of N grid points
  ScattershotSolver -- start from N random points in parameter space

Usage

See `mystic.examples.scattershot_example06` for an example of using ScattershotSolver. See `mystic.examples.batchgrid_example06` or an example of using BatchGridSolver.

All solvers included in this module provide the standard signal handling. For more information, see `mystic.mystic.abstract_solver`.
