    3 HOPSPACK solves derivative-free optimization problems with a C++ software framework.  The framework enables parallel operation using MPI (for distributed machine architectures) and multithreading (for single machines with multiple processors or cores).  Optimization problems can have linear and nonlinear constraints, and variables that are continuous or integer-valued.  Functions can be noisy, nonsmooth, and nonconvex.  HOPSPACK is released with two user communities in mind:  those who need an optimization problem solved, and those who wish to experiment with writing their own derivative-free solvers. 
     3HOPSPACK solves derivative-free optimization problems with a C++ software framework.  The framework enables parallel operation using MPI (for distributed machine architectures) and multithreading (for single machines with multiple processors or cores).  Optimization problems can be very general: linear and nonlinear constraints are supported, and variables may be continuous or integer-valued.  Functions can be noisy, nonsmooth, and nonconvex.  HOPSPACK is released with two user communities in mind:  those who need an optimization problem solved, and those who wish to experiment with writing their own derivative-free solvers.
