Run Python through a direct interface - requires special Dakota build


Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Required/Optional Description of Group Dakota Keyword Dakota Keyword Description
Optional numpy Enable the use of numpy in Dakota's Python interface


Dakota supports a library-linked interface to Python, but it must be explicitly enabled when compiling Dakota from source. Consult the Users Manual[5] for discussion and examples. Contact the Dakota users mailing list for assistance building and using Dakota with these interfaces.

The interface-analysis_driver specifies a Python module:function which implements the parameter to response mapping. List data structures are the default, but NumPy is also supported, if enabled in the build.
