analytic_gradients


Analysis driver will return gradients

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Description

The analytic_gradients specification means that gradient information is available directly from the simulation (finite differencing is not required). The simulation must return the gradient data in the Dakota format (enclosed in single brackets; see Dakota File Data Formats in the Users Manual[5]) for the case of file transfer of data. The analytic_gradients keyword is a complete specification for this case.
