Alias: none

Argument(s): STRINGLIST

The initial_state specifications provide the initial values for the state variables.

This is an optional keyword. If it is not specified, the initial state will be inferred from the other keywords that define the state variable.

Defaults are:

  • Continuous state variables - use the midpoint of the bounds
  • Set variables - use the value with the index closest to the middle of the set
  • Range variables - use the midpoint of the range
