Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Nonlinear programming is an important tool in many scientific, engineering and financial applications. Because of the inevitable delays in spreading knowledge from one field to another, practitioners not specializing in optimization may be unable to take advantage of the latest developments in optimization software. In order to improve this situation, we highlight selected key aspects of past and future optimization software, in the hope that potential users may become aware of significant advances.
