As in NOX, all parameters are passed to LOCA through parameter lists defined by the NOX::Parameter::List class. Nearly all parameters are passed to the LOCA::Stepper class during construction, although a few can be passed to the LOCA::Abstract::Group. Below is a listing of all of the parameters that can be passed to the stepper with links to relevant classes that use those parameters, followed by parameters that can be passed to the LOCA::Abstract::Group constructor.
The parameter list passed to the Stepper has two sublists, "LOCA" and "NOX". The "LOCA" sublist contains parameters and sublists for the Stepper and various LOCA support classes, while the "NOX" sublist contains parameters and sublists specific to NOX solvers. The NOX sublist is passed directly to an instance of the NOX::Solver::Manager class in the Stepper and therefore has the same structure as any NOX solver parameter list hierarchy. Please see the NOX Parameter Reference page for more details on the structure of this list.
Parameters can also be passed to the LOCA::Abstract::Group constructor. Currently, the only parameters used by the group are passed to the LOCA::Bifurcation::TPBord::SingularSolveGroup parent class, which provides techniques for approximating the solution to a (nearly) singular set of linear equations.
"Singular Solve" sublist -- Used by LOCA::Bifurcation::TPBord::SingularSolveGroup to determine which method to use for computing solutions to nearly singular systems
"Method" -- [string] (default: "Default") Method to use. Choices are
