climin is a Python package for optimization, heavily biased to machine learning scenarios distributed under the BSD 3-clause license. It works on top of numpy and (partially) gnumpy.
The project was started in winter 2011 by Christian Osendorfer and Justin Bayer. Since then, Sarah Diot-Girard, Thomas Rueckstiess and Sebastian Urban have contributed. If you use climin in your (academic) work, please cite as (tech report is in preparation):
