SGMGA is a C++ library which implements a family of sparse grid rules. These rules are "mixed", in that a different 1D quadrature rule can be specified for each dimension. Moreover, each 1D quadrature rule comes in a family of increasing size whose growth rate (typically linear or exponential) is chosen by the user. Finally, the user may also specify different weights for each dimension, resulting in anisotropic rules.
SGMGA calls many routines from the SANDIA_RULES library. Source code or compiled copies of both libraries must be available when a program wishes to use the SGMGA library.
Thanks to Drew Kouri, who pointed out a discrepancy in the computation of the variable level_1d_max which meant that certain sparse grids requested the generation of a 1D rule of a level that was higher than necessary by 1. In particular, if the Gauss-Patterson rule was involved, sparse grids that actually only needed rules of level 7 would ask also for level 8, resulting in the computation being terminated. This problem was corrected on 25 April 2011.

For a given family, a growth rule can be prescribed, which determines the orders O of the sequence of rules selected from the family. The selected rules are indexed by L, which starts at 0. The polynomial precision P of the rule is sometimes used to determine the appropriate order O.
Index | Name | Order Formula |
---|---|---|
0 | Default | "DF", moderate exponential or moderate linear |
1 | "SL", Slow linear | O=L+1 |
2 | "SO", Slow Linear Odd | O=1+2*((L+1)/2) |
3 | "ML", Moderate Linear | O=2L+1 |
4 | "SE", Slow Exponential | select smallest exponential order O so that 2L+1 <= P |
5 | "ME", Moderate Exponential | select smallest exponential order O so that 4L+1 <= P |
6 | "FE", Full Exponential | O=2^L+1 for Clenshaw Curtis, O=2^(L+1)-1 otherwise. |
