Lancelot: A Fortran Package for Large-Scale Nonlinear Optimization (Release A) (Springer Series in Computational Mathematics)
A.R. Conn, G.I.M. Gould, P.L. Toint
This book, which is concerned with algorithms for solving large-scale non-linear optimization problems, is the only complete source of documentation for the software package Lancelot and will mainly be used as a manual in conjunction with the software package. However, it is not only a reference to the input format but also to the underlying algorithms. It is the first publication of this kind for large-scale general non-linear problems. Numerous figures and tables enhance its usefulness to both novices and experts. In addition, it also gives valuable guidance to future designers of related software.
