DFO
DFO is a Fortran package for solving general nonlinear optimization problems that have the following characteristics: they are relatively small scale (less than 100 variables), their objective function is relatively expensive to compute and derivatives of such functions are not available and cannot be estimated efficiently. There also may be some noise in the function evaluation procedures. Such optimization problems arise ,for example, in engineering design, where the objective function evaluation is a simulation package treated as a black box.
