samples_on_emulator


Number of samples at which to evaluate an emulator (surrogate)

Specification

Alias: samples

Argument(s): INTEGER

Description

How many approximate function evaluations to perform on the emulator model, e.g., to compute statistics

Default Behavior

The default number of samples is method-dependent.

Examples

Perform 10000 samples on the PCE approximation of the true model:

method
  polynomial_chaos
    quadrature_order    = 2
    samples_on_emulator = 10000
