Termination condition.
The termination condition determines when the algorithm should finish. For
example, the solver should terminate when the maximal number of iterations or
some other given timeout value is reached. Moreover, it can stop the search
process when the current solution is good enough, e.g., all variables are
assigned and/or some other solution parameters are in the required ranges.
For example, the solver can stop when all variables are assigned and less
than 10% of the soft constraints are violated. Termination of the process by
the user can also be a part of the termination condition.
