Manual Page for Command >>>> PRIOR
>>>> PRIOR: prior_info
all third-level commands in block > PARAMETER
This command provides the prior information of the parameter to be estimated.
If command >>>> PRIOR is omitted, the value from the TOUGH2 input file is taken.
Prior information is only effective if a standard deviation is provided
(see command >>>> DEVIATION (p)), in which case the difference between the
parameter estimate and its prior value is penalized in the objective function.
The starting point for the optimization is given through commands >> GUESS and
If command >>>> LOGARITHM is present, the prior information is the logarithm of
the parameter. Similarly, if command >>>> FACTOR is present, the prior information
should be a multiplication factor (default is 1.0).
