Phase SpaceOptimization can be understood as finding the highest (lowest) value of the response function calculated for a set of n parameters.
What is important for practical optimization strategies is to keep the
"size" of this phase space (or search space) in mind: the finer the resolution
of the description of a system, the more points are necessary to cover
the whole range of possible states of the system. The size of the search
space increases dramatically with higher resolution and with an increasing
number of variables ("curse of dimensionality"):
