Tensor train decompositions are approximations that exploit low rank structure in an input-output mapping. Refer to the function_train surrogate model for additional details.

Usage Tips

This method is a self-contained method alternative to the function_train surrogate model specification, similar to current method specifications for polynomial chaos and stochastic collocation. In particular, this function_train method specification directly couples with a simulation model (optionally identified with a model_pointer) and an additional function train surrogate model specification is not required as these options have been embedded within the method specification.
