One of the several attributes of optimization applications that can lead an optimization astray is the existence of multiple optima, multiple local minima. If an optimizer trial solution is in the vicinity of local optima, then it will seek the bottom of that local hole, and not climb out to see the deeper hole next door. The concept is illustrated in Figure 23.1.
