The DOT library [82] contains nonlinear programming optimizers, specifically the Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno (Dakota's dot_bfgs method) and Fletcher-Reeves conjugate gradient (Dakota's dot_frcg method) methods for unconstrained optimization, and the modified method of feasible directions (Dakota's dot_mmfd method), sequential linear programming (Dakota's dot_slp method), and sequential quadratic programming (Dakota's dot_sqp method) methods for constrained optimization.
