A comparative performance evaluation of 27 nonlinear programming codes

  title={A comparative performance evaluation of 27 nonlinear programming codes},
  author={W. Hock and Klaus Schittkowski},
The numerical performance of 27 computer programs, which are all designed to solve the general constrained nonlinear optimization problem, is to be evaluated. In contrast to Schittkowski [34], where besides of one exception, the same codes are compared on randomly generated test problems, the test examples are now given by the 115 hand-selected and real life problems published in Hock and Schittkowski [19]. The different type of the test examples requires the development of a special evaluation… CONTINUE READING
