nloptr: R Interface to NLopt

Solve optimization problems using an R interface to NLopt. NLopt is a free/open-source library for nonlinear optimization, providing a common interface for a number of different free optimization routines available online as well as original implementations of various other algorithms. See <> for more information on the available algorithms. During installation of nloptr on Unix-based systems, the installer checks whether the NLopt library is installed on the system. If the NLopt library cannot be found, the code is compiled using the NLopt source included in the nloptr package.
