Detailed Description

Random predictor strategy

This class computes the predictor direction where the solution component is filled with random values and the parameter component equal to 1. Each componenet of the solution vector $v_i$ of the predictor is given by $v_i = \epsilon r_i x_i$ where $r_i$ is a random value between -1 and 1, $x_i$ is the corresponding component of the solution vector, and $\epsilon$ is a parameter.

The parameters used by this class supplied in the constructor are:

NOX::Abstract::Group::ReturnType LOCA::MultiPredictor::Random::compute bool  baseOnSecant,
const vector< double > &  stepSize,
LOCA::MultiContinuation::ExtendedGroup grp,
const LOCA::MultiContinuation::ExtendedVector prevXVec,
const LOCA::MultiContinuation::ExtendedVector xVec

Compute the predictor given the current and previous solution vectors. Set baseOnSecant to false if the predictor orientation should not be based on the secant vector (first or last steps of a continuation run).

This method actually implements the predictor computation described above

Implements LOCA::MultiPredictor::AbstractStrategy.

NOX::Abstract::Group::ReturnType LOCA::MultiPredictor::Random::evaluate const vector< double > &  stepSize,
const LOCA::MultiContinuation::ExtendedVector xVec,
LOCA::MultiContinuation::ExtendedMultiVector result
const [virtual]

Evaluate predictor with step size stepSize.

This method computes result[i] = xVec[i] + stepSize[i] * v[i] for each i, where v[i] is the ith predictor direction.

Implements LOCA::MultiPredictor::AbstractStrategy.

bool LOCA::MultiPredictor::Random::isTangentScalable  )  const [virtual]

Is the tangent vector for this predictor scalable.

For the random predictor, this always returns false.

Implements LOCA::MultiPredictor::AbstractStrategy.
