Global Optimization

Craig Loehle
Organization: Loehle Enterprises

The Mathematica application package Global Optimization is a collection of functions for constrained and unconstrained global nonlinear optimization. It uses the Mathematica system as an interface for defining the nonlinear system to be solved and for computing function numeric values. Any function computable by Mathematica can be used as input, including degree of fit of a model against data, black-box functions, and simulation models. In use since early 1998, the package is well tested by a worldwide community of users.
