This section provides a more in-depth explanation of BOSS inputs and outputs. We describe how to run and monitor simulation convergence. BOSS defaults are set to faciliate easy BO for non-experts, but through the list of keywords it is possible to fine-tune all aspects of the simulation.

To establish the BOSS nomenclature, terminology and names of key variables related to BO, we provide a set of theoretical definitions. We encourage the reader to refer back to these definitions when reading the manual.
