cumulative


Computes statistics according to cumulative functions

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Description

Statistics on model responses will be computed according to a cumulative distribution/belief/plausibility function.

Default Behavior

By default, a cumulative distribution/belief/plausibility function will be used. To explicitly specify it in the Dakota input file, however, the cumulative keyword must be appear in conjunction with the distribution keyword.

Expected Outputs

Output will be a set of model response-probability pairs determined according to a cumulative distribution/belief/plausibility function. The probabilities reported are the probabilities that the model response falls below given response threshholds.
