This class can seek for optimal values using the binary search algorithm.

It can search for an optimal value to solve a problem by trying different values and invoking given functions to evaluate the results of each tried value and determine which is closer to the optimal solution.

The search starts with a lower and an upper range search values.

The number of attempts to find the optimal values can also be limited.

Binary search is an algorithm that is often used to search for optimal values in a sorted array.

This class implements the binary search algorithm to search for optimal values of any kind.

Instead of searching for values in a sorted array, it can search values within a given range that produce optimal results returned by a given function.
