dqstep: step size generator

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

dqstep determines the smallest steps ds from s so that abs(f(s+ds)-f(s)) equals a pre-specified sensitivity

Usage

1
dqstep(x, f, sens)

Arguments

x

a list with components 'label' (of mode character), 'est' (the parameter vector with the initial guess), 'low' (vector with lower bounds), and 'upp' (vector with upper bounds)

f

the function that is to be minimized over the parameter vector defined by the list x

sens

target sensitivity (i.e. the value of f(s+ds)-f(s))

Details

uses simple quadratic interpolation

Value

returns a vector with the desired step sizes

Note

This function is part of the Bhat exploration tool
