Detailed Description

ScoreStates maintain invariants in the Model.

ScoreStates allow actions to be taken before and after the restraint evaluation process. Such code can be used to, for example:

  • log the optimization process
  • maintain constraints (see Constraint)

ScoreStates have two methods which are called during the Model::evaluate() function

  • before_evaluate() which is allowed to change the contents of containers and the value of attributes of particles and
  • after_evaluate() which can change particle derivatives

The Model uses information that the ScoreState reports about its input and output containers and particles to determine a safe order in which all the ScoreState objects registered in the model can be applied. That is, the Model will ensure that a ScoreState that has Particle A in its output list is applied before a ScoreState that has A in its input list. For ScoreState::before_evaluate(), Input and output lists are returned by the respective get_input_* and get_output_* calls. For ScoreState::after_evaluate() they are reversed (see note below).

The input and output sets for the ScoreState::after_evaluate() functions are assumed to be the reverse of the ScoreState::before_evaluate() functions. As a result, the ScoreStates are applied in opposite order after evaluate. If you have a ScoreState for which this is not true, consider splitting it into two parts.
