Jesus Lago Garcia submitted an update to the optidef package. Version number: 1.0 2016-06-10 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Provides a standard set of environments for writing minimization problems Announcement text:
Simplification of the original library. - No need to use 2 commands to add constraints. Now a single command \addConstraint works fine. - No need to indicate the number of constraints. - Parameters complexity reduced from 4 to 7. - Added a second output format.

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Erik Braun

optidef – Environments for writing optimization problems

This small library provides a standard set of environments for writing optimization problems.

It automatically aligns the problems in three points with an optional fourth:

  • Beginning of the words “minimize/argmin” and “subject to”
  • The objective function and the longest left hand side of the constraints.
  • The $= | > | <$ signs of the constraints.
  • Optionally, the user can add manually a double align character && to align some common constraints feature. A clear example could be the constraints names, e.g. (boundary constraint) alignment with (dynamic constraint).

Furthermore, it provides an easy interface to define optimization problem for three different reference situations:

  • Where no equation is referenced/numbered.
  • Where the problem is referenced with a single number.
  • Where each equation has an individual reference.

Finally, it also allows a definition of any optimization problem without a limitless number of constraints.
