OPM, a collection of Optimization Problems in Matlab

OPM is a small collection of CUTEst unconstrained and bound-constrained nonlinear optimization problems, which can be used in Matlab for testing optimization algorithms directly (i.e. without installing additional software).

Numerical Results for the Multi-objective Trust Region Algorithm MHT

A set of 78 test examples is presented for the trust region method MHT described in J. Thomann, G. Eichfelder, A trust region algorithm for heterogeneous multi-objective optimization, 2018 (available as preprint: http://optimization-online.org/DB_HTML/2018/03/6495.html) . It is designed for multi-objective heterogeneous optimization problems where one of the objective functions is an expensive black-box function, for example … Read more

CUTEst: a Constrained and Unconstrained Testing Environment with safe threads

We describe the most recent evolution of our constrained and unconstrained testing environment and its accompanying SIF decoder. Code-named SIFDecode and CUTEst, these updated versions feature dynamic memory allocation, a modern thread-safe Fortran modular design, a new Matlab interface and a revised installation procedure integrated with GALAHAD.

A new library of structured semidefinite programming instances

Solvers for semidefinite programming (SDP) have evolved a great deal in the last decade, and their development continues. In order to further support and encourage this development, we present a new test set of SDP instances. These instances arise from recent applications of SDP in coding theory, computational geometry, graph theory and structural design. Most … Read more

Comparison Between NSGA-II and MOEA/D on a Set of Multiobjective Optimization Problems with Complicated Pareto Sets

Partly due to lack of test problems, the impact of the Pareto set (PS) shapes on the performance of evolutionary algorithms has not yet attracted much attention. This paper introduces a general class of continuous multiobjective optimization test instances with arbitrary prescribed PS shapes, which could be used for studying the ability of MOEAs for … Read more

Global Optimization: Software, Test Problems, and Applications

We provide a concise review of the most prominent global optimization (GO) strategies currently available. This is followed by a discussion of GO software, test problems and several important types of applications, with additional pointers. The exposition is concentrated around topics related to continuous GO, although in certain aspects it is also pertinent to analogous … Read more
