Introduction

The Optimize Tab is where you set up and run optimizations.

The controls on the Optimize Tab are arranged from top to bottom in the order in which you should use the controls. The sections below also follow this order, so you can read this page from top to bottom to learn the process of setting up and running optimization.

The Optimize Tab is shown below with its controls labeled. See the Appropriate section below for help on a particular control.

Specifying Settings

Settings that require numerical values can be specified by directly entering the desired number into the settings table, or by entering a function of one or more of these variables. The variable names must appear exactly as shown here (case sensitive).

  • nVars = the number of independent variables (Rave determines this automatically based on the function that calculates the variable selected to serve as the objective
  • numberofequalities = the number of equality constraints
  • numberofinequalities = the number of inequality constraints (excluding upper/lower bounds on the independent variables
  • numberofbounds = the number of bound constraints (since in Rave each variable has an upper and a lower bound, this is always even)
  • x0 = the vector of initial values of the independent variables
