We offer computer
programs for mathematical optimization, aimed particularly
at large-scale problems. They cover areas of
our flagship PENNON
a unique opportunity to solve optimization problems with general smooth
objective function and combination of standard nonlinear constraints
with linear and bilinear matrix inequality constraints. Used only as
solver, it turnes into our former code PENNLP
that is among the leading codes
for general (smooth) large-scale nonlinear optimization and one of the
fastest codes for (smooth) convex optimization.
NEW: a free open source Matlab based code PENLAB can do (almost) everything that PENNON can. PENLAB was developed in cooperation with NAG Ltd.
bilinear matrix inequalities: PENBMI is the first available code that (locally) solves optimization problems with bilinear matrix inequality constraints. Together with the YALMIP parser it offers an extremely efficient tool for solving many problems of optimal control.
We further develop specialized codes for problems of
structural optimization. PENFMO
is a code for Free Material
Optimization that helps to design optimal properties and
distribution of (typically composite) material in elastic structures.
In this area we also offer consultations
and development of special-purpose
codes. Please contact us for more details.
PENOPT solvers were developed by Michal Kocvara and Michael Stingl; if you have further questions, contact us.
