The CONMIN library[84] is a public domain library of nonlinear programming optimizers, specifically the Fletcher-Reeves conjugate gradient (Dakota's conmin_frcg method) method for unconstrained optimization, and the method of feasible directions (Dakota's conmin_mfd method) for constrained optimization. As CONMIN was a predecessor to the DOT commercial library, the algorithm controls are very similar.
