== Introduction ==
Ipopt ('''I'''nterior '''P'''oint '''OPT'''imizer, pronounced I-P-Opt) is a software package for large-scale nonlinear optimization. It is designed to find (local) solutions of mathematical optimization problems of the from
{{{
min f(x)
x in R^n
s.t. g_L <= g(x) <= g_U
x_L <= x <= x_U
}}}
where
{{{ f(x): R^n --> R }}}
is the objective function, and
{{{ g(x): R^n --> R^m }}}
are the constraint functions. The vectors {{{ g_L }}} and {{{ g_U }}} denote the lower and upper bounds on the constraints, and the vectors {{{x_L}}} and {{{x_U}}} are the bounds on the variables {{{x}}}.
