Nonlinear Programming FAQ

The Nonlinear Programming FAQ was developed at the Optimization Technology Center of Northwestern University and Argonne National Laboratory and was maintained by Robert Fourer for many years. Since the NLP FAQ is no longer maintained, the content has been incorporated into the relevant sections of the NEOS Optimization Guide. Please follow the links below.

  1. What is Nonlinear Programming?
  2. What software is available for nonlinear optimization?
  3. Where are some test models for my optimization code?
  4. What references are there in this field?
  5. What resources are available online for optimization?
