Generator for single-objective target functions.

Generator for single-objective target functions.

Usage
makeSingleObjectiveFunction(name = NULL, id = NULL, description = NULL,
  fn, has.simple.signature = TRUE, vectorized = FALSE, par.set,
  noisy = FALSE, fn.mean = NULL, minimize = TRUE, constraint.fn = NULL,
  tags = character(0), global.opt.params = NULL, global.opt.value = NULL,
  local.opt.params = NULL, local.opt.values = NULL)
Arguments
name

[character(1)] Function name. Used for the title of plots for example.

id

[character(1) | NULL] Optional short function identifier. If provided, this should be a short name without whitespaces and now special characters beside the underscore. Default is NULL, which means no ID at all.

description

[character(1) | NULL] Optional function description.

fn

[function] Objective function.

has.simple.signature

[logical(1)] Set this to TRUE if the objective function expects a vector as input and FALSE if it expects a named list of values. The latter is needed if the function depends on mixed parameters. Default is TRUE.

vectorized

[logical(1)] Can the objective function handle “vector” input, i.~e., does it accept matrix of parameters? Default is FALSE.

par.set

[ParamSet] Parameter set describing different aspects of the objective function parameters, i.~e., names, lower and/or upper bounds, types and so on. See makeParamSet for further information.

noisy

[logical(1)] Is the function noisy? Defaults to FALSE.

fn.mean

[function] Optional true mean function in case of a noisy objective function. This functions should have the same mean as fn.

minimize

[logical(1)] Set this to TRUE if the function should be minimized and to FALSE otherwise. The default is TRUE.

constraint.fn

[function | NULL] Function which returns a logical vector indicating whether certain conditions are met or not. Default is NULL, which means, that there are no constraints beside possible box constraints defined via the par.set argument.

tags

[character] Optional character vector of tags or keywords which characterize the function, e.~g. “unimodal”, “separable”. See getAvailableTags for a character vector of allowed tags.

global.opt.params

[list | numeric | data.frame | matrix | NULL] Default is NULL which means unknown. Passing a numeric vector will be the most frequent case (numeric only functions). In this case there is only a single global optimum. If there are multiple global optima, passing a numeric matrix is the best choice. Passing a list or a data.frame is necessary if your function is mixed, e.g., it expects both numeric and discrete parameters. Internally, however, each representation is casted to a data.frame for reasons of consistency.

global.opt.value

[numeric(1) | NULL] Global optimum value if known. Default is NULL, which means unknown. If only the global.opt.params are passed, the value is computed automatically.

local.opt.params

[list | numeric | data.frame | matrix | NULL] Default is NULL, which means the function has no local optima or they are unknown. For details see the description of global.opt.params.

local.opt.values

[numeric | NULL] Value(s) of local optima. Default is NULL, which means unknown. If only the local.opt.params are passed, the values are computed automatically.

Value

[function] Objective function with additional stuff attached as attributes.
