Branin

This file is a wrapper used by SMAC to optimize parameters on the branin function. To run this example in the terminal, execute:

cd examples/commandline
python ../../scripts/smac.py --scenario branin/scenario.txt

Inside the scenario, this file and also configspace.pcs is referenced and therefore used for the optimization. A full call by SMAC looks like this:

<algo>           <instance> <instance specific> <cutoff time>  <runlength> <seed> <parameters>
python branin.py 0          0                   9999999        0           12345  -x1 0 -x2 0

Since SMAC processes results from the commandline, print-statements are crucial. The format of the results must be the following to ensure correct usage:

Result for SMAC: <STATUS>, <runtime>, <runlength>, <quality>, <seed>, <instance-specifics>
import sys
import numpy as np
