Detailed Description

Secant predictor strategy

This class implements a predictor strategy based on computing the secant vector $v$ to the continuation curve given by

\[ v = x - x_o \]

where $x$ is the current solution vector and $x_o$ is the previous solution vector. Note that for multi-parameter continuation, the solution component for each secant direction is given as above, with the parameter components given by the identity matrix.

For the first step of a continuation run, $x_o$ is not defined, and so a different predictor is used for this step. This predictor is specified via the "First Step Predictor" sublist of the "Predictor" sublist. This predictor is instantiated using the LOCA::Factory as usual.

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

Member Function Documentation

NOX::Abstract::Group::ReturnType LOCA::MultiPredictor::Secant::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 secant calculation described above

Implements LOCA::MultiPredictor::AbstractStrategy.

NOX::Abstract::Group::ReturnType LOCA::MultiPredictor::Secant::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::Secant::isTangentScalable  )  const [virtual]

Is the tangent vector for this predictor scalable.

For the secant predictor, this always returns true.

Implements LOCA::MultiPredictor::AbstractStrategy.
