Optional interface_pointer

Interface block pointer for the single model type

Optional solution_level_cost

Cost estimates associated with a set of solution control values.


The single model is the simplest model type. It uses a single interface instance to map variables into responses. There is no recursion in this case.

The optional interface_pointer specification identifies the interface block by cross-referencing with the id_interface string input from a particular interface keyword specification. This is only necessary when the input file has multiple interface blocks, and you wish to explicitly point to the desired block. The same logic follows for responses and variables blocks and pointers.


The example shows a minimal specification for a single model, which is the default model when no models are specified by the user.


This example does not provide any pointer strings and therefore relies on the default behavior of constructing the model with the last variables, interface, and responses specifications parsed.
