/** This interface specifies how to check if an {@link MultivariateRealOptimizer optimization
 * algorithm} has converged.
 * <p>Deciding if convergence has been reached is a problem-dependent issue. The
 * user should provide a class implementing this interface to allow the optimization
 * algorithm to stop its search according to the problem at hand.</p>
 * <p>For convenience, two implementations that fit simple needs are already provided:
 * {@link SimpleScalarValueChecker} and {@link SimpleRealPointChecker}. The first
 * one considers convergence is reached when the objective function value does not
 * change much anymore, it does not use the point set at all. The second one
 * considers convergence is reached when the input point set does not change
 * much anymore, it does not use objective function value at all.</p>
