TASMANIAN Sparse Grid Library

TSG includes a FORTRAN90 library which demonstrates how a FORTRAN program can interface with the C++ TasmanianSparseGrid (TSG) package, which implements routines for working with sparse grids, to efficiently estimate integrals or compute interpolants of scalar functions of multidimensional arguments.

Note that the FORTRAN interface is incomplete and experimental.

TSG can create three kinds of rules:

TSG is a family of algorithms for constructing multidimensional quadrature and interpolation rules from tensor products of 1-dimensional versions of such rules.

TSG includes a large variety of 1-dimensional rules, which are generally defined, by default, over the interval [-1,+1]. In that case, the multidimensional quadrature and interpolation rules will be defined over the hypercube [-1,+1]^d, but a simple linear transformation can be carried out by TSG to redefine the linearly redefine the region.

The one-dimensional rules that can be used include:

The TasmanianSparseGrid library is available for download from http://tasmanian.ornl.gov/ .

TSG is available in a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
