Description

Dakota supports a library-linked interface to Python, but it must be explicitly enabled when compiling Dakota from source. Consult the Users Manual[5] for discussion and examples. Contact the Dakota users mailing list for assistance building and using Dakota with these interfaces.

The analysis_drivers specifies a Python module:function which implements the parameter to response mapping. List data structures are the default, but NumPy is also supported, if enabled in the build.
