Summarize optimx object


Summarize an "optimx" object.


  ## S3 method for class 'optimx'
summary(object, order = NULL, = TRUE, ...) 



Object returned by optimx.


A column name, character vector of columns names, R expression in terms of column names or a list of R expressions in terms of column names. NULL, the default, means no re-ordering. rownames can be used to alphabetic ordering by method name. NULL, the default, causes it not to be reordered. Note that if follow.on is TRUE re-ordering likely makes no sense. The result is ordered by the order specification, each specified column in ascending order (except for value which is in descending order if the optimization problem is a maximization problem).

a numeric, character or logical vector selecting those par values to display. For example, par=1:5 means display only the first 5 parameters. Recycled so selects no parameters.


Further arguments to be passed to the function. Currently not used.


If order is specified then the result is reordered by the specified columns, each in ascending order (except possibly for the value column which is re-ordered in descending order for maximization problems).


summary.optimx returns object with the rows ordered according to order and with those parameters selected by


ans <- optimx(fn = function(x) sum(x*x), par = 1:2)

# order by method name.
summary(ans, order = rownames)

# order by objective value. Do not show parameter values.
summary(ans, order = value, = FALSE)

# order by objective value and then number of function evaluations
# such that objectives that are the same to 3 decimals are 
# considered the same.  Show only first parameter.
summary(ans, order = list(round(value, 3), fevals), = 1)
