Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): INTEGER

Default: 100 (exceptions: fsu_cvt , local_reliability: 25; global_{reliability , interval_est , evidence} / efficient_global: 25*n)

Description

The maximum number of iterations is used as a stopping criterion for optimizers and some adaptive UQ methods. If it has not reached any other stopping criteria first, the method will stop after it has performed max_iterations iterations. See also max_function_evaluations.

Default Behavior

Default value is 100.
