Abstract Merlin 2.0 is a new version of the recently published optimization package MERLIN-1.0. Apart from several minor improvements and extensions, this new version offers a very important feature: Programmability. A high level language has been developed, that enables the user to easily write programs that control the new MERLIN-2.0 at run time. Title of program: MERLIN-2.0 PROGRAMMABLE Catalogue Id: AAXW_v2_0 [ABHB] Nature of problem A lot of problems in Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics as well as in Engineering and in other fields are quite often reduced to minimizing a function of several variables. MERLIN-2.0 is a programmable system designed to minimize a multi-dimensional function. ADAPTATION SUMMARY: Vol:Year:Page 58:1990:119 "0001MERLIN-2.1 DOUBLE PRECISION" "MERLIN-2.1 Double precision."
