OptimizerCmaes class that implements CMA-ES. Calls adagio::pureCMAES() from package adagio. The algorithm is typically applied to search space dimensions between three and fifty. Lower search space dimensions might crash.

Dictionary

This Optimizer can be instantiated via the dictionary mlr_optimizers or with the associated sugar function opt():

mlr_optimizers$get("cmaes")
opt("cmaes")

Parameters

sigma

numeric(1)

start_values

character(1)
Create random start values or based on center of search space? In the latter case, it is the center of the parameters before a trafo is applied.

For the meaning of the control parameters, see adagio::pureCMAES(). Note that we have removed all control parameters which refer to the termination of the algorithm and where our terminators allow to obtain the same behavior.

Progress Bars

$optimize() supports progress bars via the package progressr combined with a Terminator. Simply wrap the function in progressr::with_progress() to enable them. We recommend to use package progress as backend; enable with progressr::handlers("progress").
