NONLINEAR OPTIMIZATION IN MODELING ENVIRONMENTS: Software Implementations for Compilers, Spreadsheets, Modeling Languages, and Integrated Computing Systems
JÁNOS D. PINTÉR (jdpinterhfx.eastlink.ca)
Abstract: 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 the key advantages of these implementations. Test examples, well-known numerical challenges and client applications illustrate the usage of the implementations reviewed.
Keywords: nonlinear (convex and global) optimization; LGO solver suite; implementations for compiler platforms, spreadsheets, optimization modeling languages, and scientific-technical computing systems; illustrative applications and case studies.
