Detailed Description

Class for using global nongradient-based optimization approaches to calculate interval bounds for epistemic uncertainty quantification.

The NonDGlobalSingleInterval class supports global nongradient-based optimization apporaches to determining interval bounds for epistemic UQ. The interval bounds may be on the entire function in the case of pure interval analysis (e.g. intervals on input = intervals on output), or the intervals may be on statistics of an "inner loop" aleatory analysis such as intervals on means, variances, or percentile levels. The preliminary implementation will use a Gaussian process surrogate to determine interval bounds.


The documentation for this class was generated from the following files:
