    3737HeuristicLab supports two basic optimizers that help you in testing algorithms:
    38  * [[Batch Run]]: A run in which an algorithm is executed a given number of times (repetitions).
    39  * [[Experiment]]: An experiment which contains multiple optimizers (can be organized hierarchically)
     38 * '''Batch Run''': A run in which an algorithm is executed a given number of times (repetitions).
     39 * '''Experiment''': An experiment which contains multiple optimizers (can be organized hierarchically)

    4141The //Create Experiment// dialog in the Edit menu is a great and simple way to perform parameter grid tests. If an algorithm window is highlighted, this menu option becomes available. In the dialog you will be able to define parameter settings for each of the algorithm's parameters as well as the problem instances that these should be applied to. Keep an eye on the number of variations as this can lead to huge experiments that potentially become too big for your computer's memory.
