Name
SampleSet — Container for samples. Outputs are evaluated at samples.
Subclasses
Subclasses are listed as they appear in the GUI and (in parentheses) as they appear in scripts.

Description
SampleSet
objects are part of the
postsolution analysis framework, in
which useful data is extracted from the Mesh
. The Domain
is the subset of the Mesh
to which the sampling is applied. The
SampleSet
determines how samples are taken
within the domain.
Most of the SampleSet
subclasses listed
below come in two versions. The version whose name begins with
Stat
is used when the data is going to be
sent through a statistical function. The other version is used
when the data will be sent directly to the screen or a file. The
two versions are identical, except that the direct output version
has additional parameters that govern which auxiliary data will
be displayed. These additional parameters all have names
beginning with show_
.
Not all kinds of SampleSet
are appropriate
for all kinds of Domains
.
The reference page for each type of Domain says which categories of
SampleSets
it is compatible with. The
categories are:
