The TOMLAB[1][2][3] Optimization Environment is a modeling platform for solving applied optimization problems in MATLAB.


TOMLAB is a general purpose development and modeling environment[4] in MATLAB for research, teaching and practical solution of optimization problems. It enables a wider range of problems to be solved in MATLAB and provides many additional solvers.

Optimization problems supported[edit]

Additional features[edit]

Further details[edit]

TOMLAB supports solvers like Gurobi, CPLEX, SNOPT, KNITRO and MIDACO. Each such solver can be called to solve one single model formulation. The supported solvers are appropriate for many problems, including linear programming, integer programming, and global optimization.

An interface to AMPL makes it possible to formulate the problem in an algebraic format. The MATLAB Compiler enables the user to build stand-alone solutions. Sister products are available for LabVIEW and Microsoft .NET.

Modeling is mainly facilitated by the TomSym class.
