global_balance_parameter


Tolerance for whether a subregion is worth dividing

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): REAL

Default: 0.0

Description

The global_balance_parameter controls how much global search is performed by only allowing a subregion to be subdivided if the size of the subregion divided by the size of the largest subregion is at least global_balance_parameter. Intuitively, this forces large subregions to be subdivided before the smallest subregions are refined.
