Maple 10 and the Global Optimization Toolbox - Integrated technical computing
system for advanced nonlinear systems modeling and optimization
“The Global Optimization Toolbox can be valuable to O.R. professionals
and students. The interactive Maplet interface is intuitive and lends itself
well to classroom use and for demonstration and research purposes. The matrix
form input to formalize GO problems is elegant and compact, lending itself well
for larger-scale modeling purposes”. Excerpt from, “Maple 10 and
Global Optimization Toolbox,” ORMS Today, December 2005.
