Using Named Parameters

When calling a function in Analytica, you can use the conventional method of listing parameters in their standard sequence, or named-parameter syntax, where you type the parameter name in any order, followed by a colon (:), followed by the parameter value. Here is an example:

Decisions: [d1, d2],
Constraints: [c1, c2, c3],
Maximize: x)

If a function, such as DefineOptimization(), has a large number of optional parameters, named-parameters are much more convenient to write and read. So, we use that method in our examples.

You can view the full parameter declarations from Analytica, in the actual parameter order, by selecting Definition > Optimizer > <function> from the Analytica menu.
