MCS is a Matlab program for bound constrained global optimization using function values only, based on a multilevel coordinate search that balances global and local search. The local search is done via sequential quadratic programming. MCS attempts to find the global minimizer of the bound constrained optimization problem

   min  f(data,x)
   s.t. x in [u,v] (a box in R^n)
where data is a fixed data vector (or other data structure), and f is a function of data and x defined by a user-provided m-File,
