SAL Home NUMERICS Optimization


HQP is a solver for nonlinearly constrained optimization. Its main applicational area are large-scale problems arising in optimal control. Such problems often involve high numbers of nonlinear variables and constraints. HQP treats them by exploiting their special structure, i.e. separability into multiple stages and (block-)banded sparsity structure.
