The algorithms used in DAMASK can be configured via a YAML file called numerics.yaml. This optional file needs to be located in the current working directory. Using damask.Config is the recommended way for the generation and modification of numerics.yaml. Hand-written files should be checked for correctness, e.g. with yamllint or on


The default YAML parser used in DAMASK does not support advanced features, such as references and line continuation statements, unless DAMASK was compiled with libfyaml.
