apply to problems with smooth objective and constraint functions.
The solvers search for a global minimum, or for a set of local minima.
For more information on which solver to use, see Table for Choosing a Solver.
by starting a local solver, such as
from a variety of start points. Generally the start points are random.
MultiStart you can provide a set of
start points. For more information, see How GlobalSearch and MultiStart Work.
