Loehle Enterprises Releases Global Optimization 3.0
March 2, 2000--Loehle Enterprises announces the release of Global
Global Optimization is a collection of functions for global
optimization. Using the Mathematica system as an interface, it can
the nonlinear system to be solved and compute numeric values of functions.
Currently distributed in more than 20 countries worldwide, Global
Optimization can be used for nonlinear least-squares model estimation,
maximum likelihood analysis, financial analysis (investment allocation and
derivative hedging with quadratic programming), engineering design,
optimal control, scheduling, vehicle routing, and other applications.
Global Optimization 3.0 introduces several key updates.
Additional information is available at
- The MultiStartMin function can now accept any mix of real,
- The new function InterchangeMethod solves 0-1 integer
such as vehicle routing/traveling salesman, minimum spanning tree, and
- Significant speed enhancements, particularly for constrained problems,
have been implemented.
