Use derivative data to construct surrogate models


Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Default: use function values only


The use_derivatives flag specifies that any available derivative information should be used in global approximation builds, for those global surrogate types that support it (currently, polynomial regression and the Surfpack Gaussian process).

However, it's use with Surfpack Gaussian process is not recommended.
