      Description

      In "MultiStartUnivariateRealOptimizer" (package "optimization"), the method "getResult" returns the result of the last run of the "underlying" optimizer; this last result might not be the best one, in which case it will not correspond to the value returned by the "optimize" method. This is confusing and does not seem very useful. I think that "getResult" should be defined as

       
      public double getResult() {
          return optima[0];
      }
      

      and similarly

      public double getFunctionValue() {
          return optimaValues[0];
      }
