steps_per_variable


Number of steps to take in each dimension of a centered parameter study

Specification

Alias: deltas_per_variable

Argument(s): INTEGERLIST

Description

The steps_per_variable keyword allows the user to define the number of steps in each dimesion of a centered parameter study. Because they are taken independently, the number of steps can be specified for each.

Default Behavior

The user is required to define the number of steps per variable 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
