SLSQP - Sequential Least Squares Programming

SLSQP optimizer is a sequential least squares programming algorithm which uses the Han–Powell quasi–Newton method with a BFGS update of the B–matrix and an L1–test function in the step–length algorithm. The optimizer uses a slightly modified version of Lawson and Hanson’s NNLS nonlinear least-squares solver. [Kraft1988] [LICENSE]

class pySLSQP.SLSQP(pll_type=None, *args, **kwargs)

Bases: pyOpt.pyOpt_optimizer.Optimizer

SLSQP Optimizer Class - Inherited from Optimizer Abstract Class

__solve__(opt_problem={}, sens_type='FD', store_sol=True, disp_opts=False, store_hst=False, hot_start=False, sens_mode='', sens_step={}, *args, **kwargs)

Run Optimizer (Optimize Routine)

Keyword arguments:

  • opt_problem -> INST: Optimization instance
  • sens_type -> STR/FUNC: Gradient type, Default = ‘FD’
  • store_sol -> BOOL: Store solution in Optimization class flag, Default = True
  • disp_opts -> BOOL: Flag to display options in solution text, Default = False
  • store_hst -> BOOL/STR: Flag/filename to store optimization history, Default = False
  • hot_start -> BOOL/STR: Flag/filename to read optimization history, Default = False
  • sens_mode -> STR: Flag for parallel gradient calculation, Default = ‘’
  • sens_step -> FLOAT: Sensitivity setp size, Default = {} [corresponds to 1e-6 (FD), 1e-20(CS)]

Additional arguments and keyword arguments are passed to the objective function call.
