NONLINEAR OPTIMIZATION IN MODELING ENVIRONMENTS: Software Implementations for Compilers, Spreadsheets, Modeling Languages, and Integrated Computing Systems

We present a review of several professional software products that serve to analyze and solve nonlinear (global and local) optimization problems across a variety of hardware and software environments. The product versions discussed have been implemented for compiler platforms, spreadsheets, algebraic (optimization) modeling languages, and for integrated scientific-technical computing systems. The discussion highlights some of … Read more
