The (intermediate) results of a SCONE optimization in files ending with .par. These are ASCII text files containing rows with four columns, representing: parameter name, population best, population mean, and population standard deviation.

When playing back a result stored in a .par file, the population best value is used for each parameter. When using a .par file for initialization of an optimization, population mean and population standard deviation are used to represent the initial distribution.
