nip


Uses a nonlinear interior point method for underlying optimization

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Description

Many uncertainty quantification methods solve a constrained optimization problem under the hood. The nip keyword directs Dakota to use a nonlinear interior point to solve that problem. A nonlinear interior point method traverses the interior of the feasible region to arrive at the solution to the optimization problem.
