FOSSEE Optimization Toolbox

FOSSEE Optimization Toolbox (FOT) for Scilab offers several optimization routines including, but not limited to, linear optimization, integer linear optimization, unconstrained optimization, bounded optimization and constrained optimization. The function calls and outputs are similar to those available in Matlab. These routines call optimization libraries in the backend, most of which are COIN-OR libraries. We use CLP for linear programming, CBC and SYMPHONY for integer linear programming, IPOPT (with MUMPS) for nonlinear optimization and Bonmin for integer nonlinear optimization. There are also routines for specific optimization problems like linear and nonlinear least squares, minimax, and goal programming using these solvers.
