     1= MC++: A Toolkit for Bounding Factorable Functions =
    3 Trac is a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of
    4 '''software projects'''. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.
     3A function is called ''factorable'' if it can be formed from a finite recursive composition of unary and binary operations. Typically, the latter are binary sums and binary products, and the former are outer compositions with a univariate intrinsic function, such as 'inv', 'exp', 'log', 'pow', 'sqrt', etc. Nearly every function that can be represented finitely on a computer is factorable. Given a factorable function, MC++ provides methods for computing bounds on that function, in the form of convex/concave relaxations, Taylor models, and spectral bounds. A main objective in developing MC++ has been to make the bounds computation as simple and natural as possible, similar to computing function values in real number arithmetic. In particular, MC++ can be quite useful for the fast prototyping and testing of new algorithms and ideas, for instance in such areas as global and robust optimization.
    6 All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to
    7 '''help developers write great software''' while '''staying out of the way'''
    8 and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and
    9 culture.

    17 "[wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] ''yourenvdir'' initenv" created
    18 a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample
    19 data. This newly created environment also contains
    20 [wiki:TracGuide documentation] to help you get started with your project.
     9= Project Manager =
    22 You can use [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] to configure
    23 [ Trac] to better fit your project, especially in
    24 regard to ''components'', ''versions'' and ''milestones''.
