I have a problem with a few hundred variables, which have non-linear relationships, and constraints on their possible values. I'm wanting to set these up in an optimization framework to solve their values.
Conceptually it's all done -in my head - but I'm not confident that Excel 2010 & my awesome computer are enough to get this one done. Also, I don't have a way to split the problem.
Would you please recommend a free/open-source program or a technique in Excel that will allow me to put this one to bed? I'm in search of something quick and effective today, so I can't learn any programming languages or do this one by hand.
Any suggestions from your experience appreciated!
