We try to document everything as best we can but much is limited by available time and manpower. We are are a university research group after all.

This sample selector uses a Delaunay triangulation of the data to select samples in locations far from previous samples, or in locations where the estimated model error is largest. This algorithm uses QHull, which is very slow for high dimensions, so you should only use this sample selector for less than 6D and for less than 1000 samples.

Generated for SUMO toolbox version 7.0. We are well aware that documentation is not always complete and possibly even out of date in some cases. We try to document everything as best we can but much is limited by available time and manpower. We are are a university research group after all. The most up to date documentation can always be found (if not here) in the default.xml configuration file and, of course, in the source files. If something is unclear please dont hesitate to ask.

SampleSelector

empty

Don't select any new samples, useful when modeling multiple outputs, and you don't want to involve one of these outputs in the sampling process.

<SampleSelector type="EmptySampleSelector" combineOutputs="false"/>

random

Selects new samples randomly in the design space.

<SampleSelector type="RandomSampleSelector" combineOutputs="false"/>

delaunay

This sample selector uses a Delaunay triangulation of the data to select samples in locations far from previous samples, or in locations where the estimated model error is largest. This algorithm uses QHull, which is very slow for high dimensions, so you should only use this sample selector for less than 6D and for less than 1000 samples.

A space-filling sampling algorithm which uses an approximation of the Voronoi tessellation of the design space. Will only sample within the "allowed" areas if constraints are specified.
