DOT - Design Optimization Tools. DOT is a general-purpose gradient-based optimization software library that can be used to solve a wide variety of optimization problems. Users have to link the DOT library into their own program. DOT provides the optimization technology, while the rest of the program has to provide the required function evaluations needed to perform the optimization. These function evaluations can be linear or nonlinear functions of the design variables. They may be very simple analytical functions or may be highly complicated implicit functions, for example a non-linear structural finite element simulation. Very little formal knowledge of optimization techniques is needed to make efficient use of DOT. DOT can handle constrained, unconstrained, linear and non-linear optimization problems and can automatically calculate finite difference gradients needed during the optimization. DOT can also deal with user supplied gradients.
