NLP6: Nonlinear Programming Links
- Try the nonlinear programming demo! You can choose from a
list of available nonlinear models, select one of
five different solvers, and set your own starting point. The solution trajectory
is then shown on a contour
plot. This requires downloading a zip file, unpacking it, and installing the
software. The demo and installation
instructions are here. Software developed by
- The Steepest Descent Method is a classic method for solving
minimization problems. There is a great online demo here.
- Other optimization related animations are available here.
