This white paper, from the Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG), highlights the way in which it is essential to use a solver that is appropriate for the type of optimization problem at hand. It describes the functionality of NAG solvers for both local and global optimization, and surveys a few example applications in which NAG solvers have been used. Finally, it discusses a specific application in more detail; highlighting the way in which the NAG solver can be called from within various environments by users having little programming knowledge.
