Iterative numerical optimizaiton routines?

P: n/a
Is anyone aware of iterative numerical optimzaiton routines in Java
and/or Python? I'm looking for a routine similar to the fmincon in
Matlab, powell in IDL, solver in Excel. There appears to be an
unconstrained optimization routine in the book "A Numerical Library in
Java for Scientists and Engineers" although I'd prefer a constrained
routine. Any comments on the book would be helpful too since I'll
probably buy it shortly.

Thanks,
Anthony

There is Aaron Watters LP and netflow optimisation on Python Starship
(user arw I beleieve). There are also a Nelder Mead algorithm and others
in Python SciPy I think. There is a java LP at Washington university
somewhere google for 'cassowary'.

SciPy contains many numeric optimisation algorithms - not written in Python,
but as extention modules - unfortunately SciPy is still Python 2.2.
