nonlinear optimization library -- development package

NLopt is a free/open-source library for nonlinear optimization, providing a common interface for a number of different free optimization routines available online as well as original implementations of various other algorithms. Its features include: . Callable from C, C++, Fortran, GNU Octave, Python, GNU Guile, GNU R.
  • A common interface for many different algorithms
  • Support for large-scale optimization.
  • Both global and local optimization algorithms.
  • Algorithms using function values only (derivative-free) and also algorithms exploiting user-supplied gradients.
  • Algorithms for unconstrained optimization, bound-constrained optimization, and general nonlinear inequality/equality constraints.

This package contains the header files, static libraries and symbolic links that developers using NLopt library will need.
