Number of iterations allowed for optimizers and adaptive UQ methods


This keyword is related to the topics:


Alias: none

Argument(s): INTEGER

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


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. In cases where there are multiple nested iterations to be controlled, max_iterations generally controls the outer-most context.

Default Behavior

Default value is 100.
