Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 02D-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Problems of large-scale nonlinear optimization are central to the solution of difficult and novel problems that arise from the need to distribute electric power in the most efficient and reliable way. In recognition of the importance of optimization in this area, DOE & apos;s Office of Advanced Scientific Computing (ASCR) has made substantial in...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will address the challenges of large-scale nonlinear optimization in the presence of discrete elements. Building on previous success with an integrated approach to classical, smooth nonlinear optimization, the goal of this research will be to derive and implement large-scale general-purpose...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase II research project will address the design and creation of integrated nonlinear optimization software that combines complementary approaches to nonlinear optimization to achieve robust performance over a wide range of application requirements. The work will concentrate on the area of smooth nonline...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will address the problem of creating robust and efficient software for the solution of large-scale nonlinear optimization problems. Taking advantage of recent advances in algorithm design, the project will investigate novel versions of both interior-point and active-set methods for nonlinea...
