Description

The functions can be called in two different ways

Usage

1
2
3
computeExpectedRunningTime(fun.evals, fun.success.runs = NULL,
  fun.reached.target.values = NULL, fun.target.value = NULL,
  penalty.value = Inf)

Arguments

fun.evals

[numeric]
Vector containing the number of function evaluations.

fun.success.runs

[logical]
Boolean vector indicating which algorithm runs were successful, i. e., which runs reached the desired target value. Default is NULL.

fun.reached.target.values

[numeric | NULL]
Numeric vector with the objective values reached in the runs. Default is NULL.

fun.target.value

[numeric(1) | NULL]
Target value which shall be reached. Default is NULL.

penalty.value

[numeric(1)]
Penalty value which should be returned if none of the algorithm runs was successful. Default is Inf.

Details

The Expected Running Time (ERT) is one of the most popular performance measures in optimization. It is defined as the expected number of function evaluations needed to reach a given precision level, i. e., to reach a certain objective value for the first time.

Value

[numeric(1)] Estimated Expected Running Time.
