Global Optimization 9
Reliable Global Optimization for Constrained and Unconstrained
Global Optimization is a collection of functions for
constrained and unconstrained global nonlinear optimization. Any function computable by Mathematica can be used as input, including the degree of fit of a model against data, black-box functions, finance models, wavy functions with local minima, time-series models, and DEQ models. It can solve problems that the built-in Mathematica functions and other packages do not solve. New in Global Optimization 9 is support for binary variables (MIP problems) and improved solution of tough problems. In use since 1998, the package is well tested by a worldwide community of users.
The tools in Global Optimization are able to solve some of the most challenging optimization problems, including 10,000 variable problems. The package utilizes the parallel computing capabilities of Mathematica 7 or later to greatly reduce run times. Global Optimization can solve problems where the initial search region is complex. It is a cost-effective tool for reliable problem solution.
