Detailed Description

Arbitrary combination of status tests.

In the AND (see NOX::StatusTest::Combo::ComboType) combination, the result is Unconverged (see NOX::StatusTest::StatusType) if any of the tests is Unconverged. Otherwise, the result is equal to the result of the first test in the list that is either Converged or Failed. It is not recommended to mix Converged and Failed tests in an AND combination.

In the OR combination, the result is Unconverged if all of the tests are Unconverged. Otherwise, it is the result of the first test in the list that is either Converged or Failed. Therefore, it will generally make sense to put the Failed -type tests at the end of the OR list.

Note:
We call checkStatus on every convergence test, though some may be called with the NOX::StatusTest::None option.

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum NOX::StatusTest::Combo::ComboType
 

The test can be either the AND of all the component tests, or the OR of all the component tests.

Enumeration values:
AND  Logically "AND" together the results of the tests in this combination.
OR  Logically "OR" together the results of the tests in this combination.


Member Function Documentation

NOX::StatusTest::Combo & NOX::StatusTest::Combo::addStatusTest Generic a  )  [virtual]
 

Add another test to this combination.

Calls isSafe() to determine if it is safe to add a to the combination.

void NOX::StatusTest::Combo::andOp const Solver::Generic problem,
NOX::StatusTest::CheckType  checkType
[protected, virtual]
 

Use this for checkStatus when this is an AND type combo. Updates NOX::StatusTest::Combo::status.

If any tests are NOX::StatusTest::Unconverged, then the status of this test is NOX::StatusTest::Unconverged. If there is a combination of NOX::StatusTest::Failed and NOX::StatusTest::Converged in the tests that are AND'd together, the value of status for this test is set to the status of the first test it encounters. The tests are evaluated in the order that they were added to the combination.

Note:
We compute the status of all tests in the combination for the sake of completeness, even if we could determine the status of this combination test without that check.

NOX::StatusTest::StatusType NOX::StatusTest::Combo::checkStatusEfficiently const NOX::Solver::Generic problem,
NOX::StatusTest::CheckType  checkType
[virtual]
 

Tests stopping criterion.

See addOp() and orOp() for details.

Reimplemented from NOX::StatusTest::Generic.

bool NOX::StatusTest::Combo::isSafe Generic a  )  [protected]
 

Check whether or not it is safe to add a to this list of tests.

This is necessary to avoid any infinite recursions (i.e., a test cannot own a copy of itself).

void NOX::StatusTest::Combo::orOp const Solver::Generic problem,
NOX::StatusTest::CheckType  checkType
[protected, virtual]
 

Use this for checkStatus when this is an OR type combo. Updates NOX::StatusTest::Combo::status.

If there is a combination of NOX::StatusTest::Failed and NOX::StatusTest::Converged in the tests that are OR'd together, the value of status for this test is set to the status of the first test it encounters which is not NOX::Status::Unconvered. The tests are evaluated in the order that they were added to the combination.

Note:
We compute the status of all tests in the combination for the sake of completeness, even if we could determine the status of this combination test without that check.
