A TaskGenerator for the simplex task in mlbench::mlbench.simplex().

Note that the generator implemented in mlbench returns fewer samples than requested.

Dictionary

This TaskGenerator can be instantiated via the dictionary mlr_task_generators or with the associated sugar function tgen():

mlr_task_generators$get("simplex")
tgen("simplex")

Parameters
