Lowmem option in BEAGLE

Posted by SharonBrowning on 16 Jul 2009 at 14:29 GMT

BEAGLE includes an option to decrease memory usage, but this would come at the cost of increased running time.

The low memory option for BEAGLE increases computing time by at most a factor of 2, so that even with this option BEAGLE will still be considerably faster than the most accurate competing methods.
