Abstract

This paper presents the authors' personal views on two fundamental aspects amongst the recent developments in the growing field of large-scale nonlinear mathematical programming. Important concepts for the description of problem structure are discussed in detail. A systematic approach to software development for this class of problems is also presented. The approach incorporates both suitable numerical algorithms and user oriented standard format for problem specification in a modular and coherent system.
