Bug#561487: ITP: yorick-optimpack -- optimization of large scale problems for the Yorick language

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Thibaut Paumard <paumard@users.sourceforge.net>

* Package name    : yorick-optimpack
  Version         : 1.3
  Upstream Author : Éric Thiébaut <thiebaut@obs.univ-lyon1.fr>
* URL             : http://www-obs.univ-lyon1.fr/labo/perso/eric.thiebaut/optimpack.html
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: C, Yorick
  Description     : optimization of large scale problems for the Yorick language
    OptimPack is a portable C library which implements algorithms for
    optimization of large scale problems with bound constraints. Large
    scale means some million variables (e.g. pixel values) or more.
    The most important algorithm is VMLM-B: a variable metric method with
    limited memory requirements and, possibly, bound constraints on the
    parameters. The algorithm is based on limited memory BFGS updates
    with Moré & Thuente inexact line search and gradient projection to
    account for bounds.
    This package contains a Yorick plug-in based on OptimPack.

I am the maintainer of 13 yorick-related packages already in main. OptimPack in required for another package I will ITP right away: yorick-mira. MiRA is used on a regular basis by several persons at my workplace.

Best regards, Thibaut.
