function_precision


Specify the maximum precision of the analysis code responses

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): REAL

Default: 1.0e-10

Description

The function_precision control provides the algorithm with an estimate of the accuracy to which the problem functions can be computed. This is used to prevent the algorithm from trying to distinguish between function values that differ by less than the inherent error in the calculation.
