We offer computer
programs for mathematical optimization, aimed particularly
at large-scale problems. They cover areas of
NEW nonlinear and semidefinite programming: our flagship PENNON will offer 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.
nonlinear programming: our code PENNLP is among the leading codes for general (smooth) large-scale nonlinear optimization and one of the fastest codes for (smooth) convex optimization
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.
