Detailed Description

template<class Scalar>
class Thyra::DirectionalFiniteDiffCalculator< Scalar >

Utility calss for computing directional finite differences of a model.

This class computes finite difference approximations to the variations:

The client can leave any of the delta_x or delta_p(l) directions as NULL and they will be assumed to be zero.

Warning!</b The client should only set parameters using either the parameter list function setParameterList() or the more typesafe functions but not a mixture of the two. The behavior of setting options in two different ways is undefined and is likely to change.

ToDo: Finish documentaton!

)

template<class Scalar>
Thyra::DirectionalFiniteDiffCalculator< Scalar >::STANDARD_MEMBER_COMPOSITION_MEMBERS ( ScalarMag  ,
fd_step_size   
)

Pick the size of the finite difference step.

If fd_step_size < 0 then the implementation will try to select it based on the order of method fd_method_type() that is selected.

template<class Scalar>
Thyra::DirectionalFiniteDiffCalculator< Scalar >::STANDARD_MEMBER_COMPOSITION_MEMBERS ( ScalarMag  ,
fd_step_size_min   
)

Pick the minimum step size under which the finite difference product will not be computed.

If fd_step_size_min == 0 then the finite difference computation will always be performed. If fd_step_size_min < 0 then the minimum step size will be determined internally.

template<class Scalar>
ModelEvaluatorBase::OutArgs< Scalar > Thyra::DirectionalFiniteDiffCalculator< Scalar >::createOutArgs ( const ModelEvaluator< Scalar > &  model,
const SelectedDerivatives fdDerivatives 
)

Create an augmented out args object for holding finite difference objects.

Warning! The returned object must only be used with the below functions calcVariations() and calcDerivatives() and not with the original model object directly.

Definition at line 337 of file Thyra_DirectionalFiniteDiffCalculator_def.hpp.

template<class Scalar>
void Thyra::DirectionalFiniteDiffCalculator< Scalar >::calcVariations ( const ModelEvaluator< Scalar > &  model,
const ModelEvaluatorBase::InArgs< Scalar > &  basePoint,
const ModelEvaluatorBase::InArgs< Scalar > &  directions,
const ModelEvaluatorBase::OutArgs< Scalar > &  baseFunctionValues,
const ModelEvaluatorBase::OutArgs< Scalar > &  variations 
) const

Compute variations using directional finite differences..

The computation may fail if a NaN or Inf is encountered during any of the computations in which case a NaNInfException exception will be thrown. Otherwise the computation should be completed successfully.

If the finite difference could not be computed because of cramped bounds then a CrampedBoundsException object will be thrown.

ToDo: Discuss options!
