#' Maximin Latin Hypercube Sample
#' Draws a Latin Hypercube Sample from a set of uniform distributions for use in
#' creating a Latin Hypercube Design.  This function attempts to optimize the
#' sample by maximizing the minium distance between design points (maximin criteria).
#' @details Latin hypercube sampling (LHS) was developed to generate a distribution
#' of collections of parameter values from a multidimensional distribution.
#' A square grid containing possible sample points is a Latin square iff there
#' is only one sample in each row and each column. A Latin hypercube is the
#' generalisation of this concept to an arbitrary number of dimensions.  When
#' sampling a function of \code{k} variables, the range of each variable is divided
#' into \code{n} equally probable intervals. \code{n} sample points are then drawn such that a
#' Latin Hypercube is created.  Latin Hypercube sampling generates more efficient
#' estimates of desired parameters than simple Monte Carlo sampling.
#' This program generates a Latin Hypercube Sample by creating random permutations
#' of the first \code{n} integers in each of \code{k} columns and then transforming those
#' integers into n sections of a standard uniform distribution.  Random values are
#' then sampled from within each of the n sections.  Once the sample is generated,
#' the uniform sample from a column can be transformed to any distribution by
#' using the quantile functions, e.g. qnorm().  Different columns can have
#' different distributions.
#' Here, values are added to the design one by one such that the maximin criteria is
#' satisfied.
#' @param n The number of partitions (simulations or design points or rows)
#' @param k The number of replications (variables or columns)
#' @param method \code{build} or \code{iterative} is the method of LHS creation.
#' \code{build} finds the next best point while constructing the LHS.
#' \code{iterative} optimizes the resulting sample on [0,1] or sample grid on [1,N]
#' @param dup A factor that determines the number of candidate points used in the
#' search. A multiple of the number of remaining points than can be
#' added.  This is used when \code{method="build"}
#' @param eps The minimum percent change in the minimum distance used in the
#' \code{iterative} method
#' @param maxIter The maximum number of iterations to use in the \code{iterative} method
#' @param optimize.on \code{grid} or \code{result} gives the basis of the optimization.
#' \code{grid} optimizes the LHS on the underlying integer grid.
#' \code{result} optimizes the resulting sample on [0,1]
#' @param debug prints additional information about the process of the optimization
#' @return An \code{n} by \code{k} Latin Hypercube Sample matrix with values uniformly distributed on [0,1]
