User's Guide for ADIFFSQP Version 0.91
ADIFFSQP is a utility program that allows to user of the FFSQP constrained nonlinear optimization routines to invoke the computational differentiation (or automatic differentiation:AD) preprocessor ADIFOR2.0  conveniently
Multiobjective Optimization of a Leg Mechanism with Various Spring Configurations for Force Reduction
In this paper, the design of a two degree-of-freedom leg mechanism is accomplished by a two-stage optimization process. In the first stage, leg dimensions are optimized with respect to three design objectives: minimize (i) ...
Feasible Sequential Quadratic Programming for Finely Discretized Problems from SIP
A sequential Quadratic Programming algorithm designed to efficiently solve nonlinear optimization problems with many inequality constraints, e.g. problems arising from finely discretized Semi-Infinite Programming, is ...
Globally Convergent Algorithms for Robust Pole Assignment by State Feedback
It is observed that an algorithm proposed in 1985 by Kautsky, Nichols and Van Dooren (KNV) amounts to maximize, at each iteration, the determinant of the candidate closed-loop eigenvector matrix X with respect to one of ...
