TaoSetFromOptions#

Sets various Tao parameters from the options database

Synopsis#

#include "petsctao.h" 
PetscErrorCode TaoSetFromOptions(Tao tao)

Collective

Input Parameter#

  • tao - the Tao solver context

Options Database Keys#

  • -tao_type - The algorithm that Tao uses (lmvm, nls, etc.)

  • -tao_gatol - absolute error tolerance for ||gradient||

  • -tao_grtol - relative error tolerance for ||gradient||

  • -tao_gttol - reduction of ||gradient|| relative to initial gradient

  • -tao_max_it - sets maximum number of iterations

  • -tao_max_funcs - sets maximum number of function evaluations

  • -tao_fmin - stop if function value reaches fmin

  • -tao_steptol - stop if trust region radius less than

  • -tao_trust0 - initial trust region radius

  • -tao_view_solution - view the solution at the end of the optimization process

  • -tao_monitor - prints function value and residual norm at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_short - same as -tao_monitor, but truncates very small values

  • -tao_monitor_constraint_norm - prints objective value, gradient, and constraint norm at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_globalization - prints information about the globalization at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_solution - prints solution vector at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_ls_residual - prints least-squares residual vector at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_step - prints step vector at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_gradient - prints gradient vector at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_solution_draw - graphically view solution vector at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_step_draw - graphically view step vector at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_gradient_draw - graphically view gradient at each iteration

  • -tao_monitor_cancel - cancels all monitors (except those set with command line)

  • -tao_fd_gradient - use gradient computed with finite differences

  • -tao_fd_hessian - use hessian computed with finite differences

  • -tao_mf_hessian - use matrix-free Hessian computed with finite differences

  • -tao_view - prints information about the Tao after solving

  • -tao_converged_reason - prints the reason Tao stopped iterating

Note#

To see all options, run your program with the -help option or consult the user’s manual. Should be called after TaoCreate() but before TaoSolve()
