Find the word definition



APOPT (for Advanced Process OPTimizer) is a software package for solving large-scale optimization problems of any of these forms:

  • Linear programming (LP)
  • Quadratic programming (QP)
  • Quadratically constrained quadratic program (QCQP)
  • Nonlinear programming (NLP)
  • Mixed integer programming (MIP)
  • Mixed integer linear programming (MILP)
  • Mixed integer nonlinear programming (MINLP)

Applications of the APOPT include chemical reactors, friction stir welding, prevention of hydrate formation in deep-sea pipelines, computational biology, solid oxide fuel cells, and flight controls for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
