  • calerr (float) – Measurement error in the experimental data.
  • description (string) – Optional description of this run.

Calls to run all the jobs in the Sweep. Collect the data from the outputs and call the PSweep analyze method. If the PSweep method has an iterative callback defined, call it, otherwise return.

  • fn (string) – HDF5 filename for output. ‘.hdf5’ will be appended to the filename if necessary. If fn is None, a filename will be generated starting with “sweep_” followed by a timestamp.
  • overwrite (boolean) – If True and fn is not None, will silently overwrite any previous files of the same name.
