# CONCON: A code for constrained minimization without derivative computation

## Description

Title of program: CONCON Catalogue Id: ACEM_v1_0 Nature of problem The problem is mathematical rather than physical, although the source of the mathematical problem can be any one of a number of fields of physics or engineering. The problem solved by CONCON is that of minimizing a nonlinear function f(x), where x may (but need not) be subject to a set of linear constraints of the form cTi(x)>bi, i=1,... ,m. Here x is a vector of n variables. Some of the constraints may be equalities or they may be simple bounds x1>0, which may be written as eTi(x) >0 to fit the ...
