DasOptimization (V1.0) is a lightweight, robust and scalable library capable of solving a system of nonlinear equations and nonlinear unconstrained optimization. Some of the capabilities are:
- DasOptimization implemented two descent algorithms; Line Search and Trust-Region-Dogleg algorithm.
- Analytical gradient, the Jacobian or the Hessian can be supplied but if they are not available, they will be calculated with finite differences.
- DasOptimization can recover from singular Hessian and Jacobian matrices.
- DasOptimization is coded only in Java and therefore, it can be used in Android projects.

DasOptimization is created for and successfully employed in DAS Mechanism Analysis which is a fast kinematic analysis software for mechanisms.
EJML (Efficient Java Matrix Library) is used for matrix calculations. You need to include or build appropriate .jar files in your project library before running any DasOptimization code.
DasOptimization (V2.0) will include a nonlinear constrained optimizer capable of handling nonlinear constraints.
DasOptimization is developed by Design, Innovation and Simulation Lab. of the Ohio State University.
