BARON is a computational system for solving nonconvex optimization problems to global optimality. Purely continuous, purely integer, and mixed-integer nonlinear problems can be solved with the software. The theory and algorithms implemented in the BARON software are the result of over two decades of academic research. BARON provides:
  • A general purpose solver for mixed-integer nonlinear optimization problems.
  • Access under MATLAB with a freely available MATLAB/BARON interface.
  • Access under the freely available JuMPPyomoand YALMIP modeling systems.
  • Availability under the widely used modeling languages AIMMSAMPL, and GAMS through separate licensing.
  • Developer-oriented modeling language that facilitates custom applications.
