3Couenne (Convex Over- and Under ENvelopes for Nonlinear Estimation) is
4an exact branch-and-bound algorithm that uses a library for bound
5reduction, branching, and linearization cuts to solve Mixed-integer,
6non-convex Programming problems. It comprises:
7
81) an expression library;
92) separation of linearization cuts;
103) branching rules;
114) bound tightening methods.
12
13To use Couenne, follow the installation instructions contained in the
14INSTALL file in the root directory of this package. Then run
15
16$ couenne instance.nl
17
18specifying a stub (instance.nl) as an input.

22This project was initiated in 2006 by IBM and Carnegie Mellon
23University as part of a joint effort to develop algorithms for MINLP.
