30 *      qpOASES's core functionality and software design have been developed by
31 *      the following main developers (in alphabetical order):
32 *      <ul>
33 *      <li>Hans Joachim Ferreau
34 *      <li>Christian Kirches
35 *      <li>Andreas Potschka
36 *      </ul>
37 *
38 *      Moreover, the following developers have contributed code to qpOASES's
39 *      third-party interfaces or provided additional functionality
40 *      (in alphabetical order):
41 *      <ul>
42 *      <li>Alexander Buchner
43 *      <li>Holger Diedam
44 *      <li>Dennis Janka
45 *      <li>Manuel Kudruss
46 *      <li>Andreas Waechter
47 *      <li>Sebastian F. Walter
48 *      </ul>
49 *
50 *      Finally, the following people have not contributed to the source code,
51 *      but have helped making qpOASES even more useful by testing, reporting
52 *      bugs or proposing algorithmic improvements (in alphabetical order):
53 *      <ul>
54 *      <li>Eckhard Arnold
55 *      <li>Boris Houska
56 *      <li>D. Kwame Minde Kufoalor
57 *      <li>Aude Perrin
58 *      <li>Milan Vukov
59 *      <li>Thomas Wiese
60 *      <li>Leonard Wirsching
61 *      </ul>
62 *
63 *      We also would like to thank two persons who had a major share in making
64 *      qpOASES a success. Not by writing even a single line of code, but by
65 *      establishing the idea of using a homotopy-based approach for high-speed
66 *      QP solutions and by excellent scientific guidance during the development
67 *      process:
68 *      <ul>
69 *      <li>Hans Georg Bock
70 *      <li>Moritz Diehl
71 *      </ul>
72 *
73 *      All users are invited to further improve qpOASES by providing comments, code enhancements,
74 *      bug reports, additional documentation or whatever you feel is missing. The preferred way
75 *      of doing so is to <b>create a <a href="https://projects.coin-or.org/qpOASES/newticket">new ticket</a>
76 *      at the qpOASES webpage</b>. In case you do not want to disclose your feedback to the public,
77 *      you may send an e-mail to <a href="mailto:support@qpOASES.org">support@qpOASES.org</a>
78 *      or contact one of the main developers directly.
