Member Function Documentation

bool NOX::Solver::Manager::reset NOX::Abstract::Group grp,
NOX::StatusTest::Generic tests
[virtual]
 

A soft reset of the nonlinear solver for a new problem.

This is a light-weight version of reset that takes no parameter list. Therefore, this reset only resets counters, the initial guess (contained in the grp argument) and new status tests (contained in the tests argument).

This reset allows problems to bypass the potentially time consuming parsing of the parameter lists.

Implements NOX::Solver::Generic.

bool NOX::Solver::Manager::reset NOX::Abstract::Group grp,
NOX::StatusTest::Generic tests,
NOX::Parameter::List params
[virtual]
 

Reset the nonlinear solver for a new solve.

Parameters:
grp On input, contains the intial guess. On output, contains the solution.
tests Status tests to check for convergence or failure. These tests will be modified by the solver.
params List of parameters. These parameters will be modified by the solver.
Note:
All the objects passed to reset() will be modified.

The group object will be cloned via NOX::Abstract::Group::clone(), and the vectors within will also be individually cloned via NOX::Abstract::Vector::clone().

Warning:
If the contents of grp, tests, or params are modified by the calling program after calling reset(), then the behavior of iterate() and solve() are completely undefined. To remedy this, call reset() again with the modified objects.

Implements NOX::Solver::Generic.

NOX::StatusTest::StatusType NOX::Solver::Manager::solve  )  [virtual]
 

Solve the nonlinear problem and return final status.

By "solve", we call iterate() until the NOX::StatusTest value is either NOX::StatusTest::Converged or NOX::StatusTest::Failed.

Implements NOX::Solver::Generic.
