The NEOS Server offers IPOPT for the solution of non-linear programs in
format. IPOPT is an open source software package for large-scale non-linear
optimization. It implements a primal-dual interior point algorithm,
which uses a filter line search method to ensure global convergence.
on IPOPT is available from the
IPOPT home page. A technical report describing the algorithm can be downloaded here.
IPOPT has been developed by Andreas Wächter, Lorenz T.
Biegler, Arvind Raghunathan, and Yi-Dong Lang.
Using the NEOS Server for IPOPT
The user must submit a model in
format to solve a non-linear program (NLP).
Examples of models in AMPL format can be found in the
A large collection of NLPs modeled in AMPL can be found at Bob Vanderbei's website.
The model is specified by a model file, and optionally,
a data file and a commands file.
If the command file is specified it must contain
the AMPL solve command.
The commands file can contain any AMPL command, and may set options for IPOPT, for example
option ipopt_options "imaxiter=1000 dtol=1e-6";
Printing directed to standard out is returned
to the user with the output.
Having a rich, realistic testset is of paramount importance for the evolution of optimization solvers. Therefore, models submit to NEOS for solution with IPOPT may be used by the authors for testing and improvement of their code.
