nonlinear_equality_constraints


Group to specify nonlinear equality constraints

Specification

Alias: num_nonlinear_equality_constraints

Argument(s): INTEGER

Default: 0

Required/Optional Description of Group Dakota Keyword Dakota Keyword Description
Optional targets Target values for the nonlinear equality constraint
Optional scale_types

Choose how each constraint is scaled

Optional scales

Characteristic values for scaling

Description

Specifies the number of nonlinear equality constraint functions returned by the interface.

The targets specification provides the targets for nonlinear equalities of the form

\[h(x) = h_t\]

and the defaults for the equality targets enforce a value of 0. for each constraint

\[h(x) = 0.0\]

The scale_types and scales keywords are related to scaling of $ h \left( x \right) $. See method-scaling for details.
