Note that if there are bounds constraints (see
BaseMultivariateOptimizer.getUpperBound()), then a simple rejection algorithm is used
at each restart. This implies that the random vector generator should have
a good probability to generate vectors in the bounded domain, otherwise the
rejection algorithm will hit the
BaseOptimizer.getMaxEvaluations() count without
generating a proper restart point. Users must be take great care of the curse of dimensionality.

optimizemethod returns the best point only. This method returns all the points found at the end of each starts, including the best one already returned by the
nullelements corresponding to the runs that did not converge. This means all elements will be

public PAIR optimize(OptimizationData... optData)
The list of parameters is open-ended so that sub-classes can extend it with arguments specific to their concrete implementations.
When the method is called multiple times, instance data is overwritten only when actually present in the list of arguments: when not specified, data set in a previous call is retained (and thus is optional in subsequent calls).
Important note: Subclasses must override
BaseOptimizer.parseOptimizationData(OptimizationData) if they need to register
their own options; but then, they must also call
super.parseOptimizationData(optData) within that method.
optData- Optimization data. In addition to those documented in
BaseOptimizer, this method will register the following data:
