fixed_sequence


Reuse the same sequence and samples for multiple sampling sets

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Default: sequence not fixed: sampling patterns are variable among multiple QMC runs

Description

The fixed_sequence control is similar to fixed_seed for other sampling methods. If fixed_sequence is specified, the user will get the same sequence (meaning the same set of samples) for subsequent calls of the QMC sampling method (for example, this might be used in a surrogate based optimization method or a parameter study where one wants to fix the uncertain variables).
