Solver Foundation on DevLabshttp://blogs.msdn.com/b/somasegar/archive/2011/04/26/solver-foundation-on-devlabs.aspxToday we're adding Solver Foundation to DevLabs.
Solver Foundation is a .NET library for mathematical programming, modeling, and optimization. Mathematical programming is all about decision making, and decision problems are everywhere: from supplyen-USTelligent Evolution Platform Developer Build (Build: 5.6.50428.7875)re: Solver Foundation on DevLabshttp://blogs.msdn.com/b/somasegar/archive/2011/04/26/solver-foundation-on-devlabs.aspx#10594642Thu, 19 Feb 2015 20:03:50 GMT91d46819-8472-40ad-a661-2c78acb4018c:10594642DrMDodd123<p>I am new to using the Solver Foundation library, but believe that it can solve non-linear problem. Here is one I am trying to formulated. I have a number of points x,y, and z and I would like to know the best fitting elliptical cylinder for these points. Now I thought I could use the generalized equation of an ellipse, project along z direction. However, I haven't see examples where given xi and yi what is the best fit.</p>

I encourage you to give it a try and let us know how it goes in the Solver Foundation forum.</p>

Solver Foundation is not available on Azure at the present time, though the team has had a few requests for this. Any future announcements about Solver Foundation for Azure will be made on the forum.

This could be a problem when item count gets large.</p>
<p>I was wondering if the solver foundation library was offered in the Azure cloud? If so, I could push my solution (model/data) to your azure compute engine since the problem definition is only 60 lines of code. Any thoughts?</p>

<p>I am looking at playing with this to replace the IBM ILOG that we are using.</p>
<p>Or am I way off the mark here. We mainly use it inSilicon Manufaturing to figure out Bin Spec Assingments based on Schedules.</p>

I'm sure this is going to be a real winner. At last all my quasi mathematical optomizing and solving can get handed over to a real expert.</p>

Can't wait to play with it tonight.</p>

This should pave the way for people to start incorporating least cost & optimizations. Currently working on a truck loading problem that could be helped by this.</p>

Thanks for asking! No, the licensing for Solver Foundation hasn't changed a bit. With the new site and forum we hope that it will be easier to download Solver Foundation, try it out, and provide feedback. We also hope that adding Solver Foundation to DevLabs will introduce this library to a whole new set of .NET programmers.</p>
<p>Best regards, Nathan</p>

Has the licensing for SF changed at all?</p>
