Control whether to under- or over-estimate function values in PWL approximation
 Type: double
 Default value: -1
 Minimum value: -1
 Maximum value: 1

This parameter controls whether the piecewise-linear approximation of a function constraint is an underestimate of the function, an overestimate, or somewhere in between. A value of <span>$</span>0.0<span>$</span> will always underestimate, while a value of <span>$</span>1.0<span>$</span> will always overestimate. A value in between will interpolate between the underestimate and the overestimate. A special value of -1 chooses points that are on the original function. The behaviour is not defined for other negative values.

See the discussion of function constraints for more information.
