Size of steps to be taken in each dimension of a centered parameter study

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): REALLIST

Description

The step_vector keyword defines the individual step size in each dimension, treated separately.

Default Behavior

The user is required to define the number of step sizes for a centered parameter study. There are no default values.

Steps are taken in the plus and minus directions, and are defined in either actual values (continuous and discrete range) or index offsets (discrete set).

Examples

method
  centered_parameter_study
    steps_per_variable = 5 4
    step_vector = 0.4 0.5
