GOBLIN Publisher's description
GOBLIN is a C++ class library focussed on graph optimization and network programming problems.
GOBLIN is a C++ class library focussed on graph optimization and network programming problems. It deals with all of the standard graph optimization problems discussed by textbooks and in courses on combinatorial optimization.
This software package also consists of a shell interpreter which extends the well-known Tcl/Tk language to graph objects and a graph browser and editor tool. Executable solvers are available for practical optimization problems. The graph browser applies for teaching and scientific documentation purposes.
GOBLIN is open source software and licenced by the GNU Lesser Public License (LGPL). That is, GOBLIN may be downloaded, compiled and used for scientific, educational and other purposes free of charge. For details, in particular the statements about redistribution and changes of the source code, observe the LGPL document which is attached to the package.
The gosh interpreter extends the Tcl/Tk scripting language to graph objects in a natural way.
The goblet graph browser and editor tool. Graphical front end to the library.
An open class hierarchy which strictly separates between abstract classes (all mathematical algorithms are defined as methods of abstract classes), implementations (i.e. by incidence lists, adjacency matrices) and logical views (problem transformations).
A generic branch and bound module with several applications to graph optimization.
Logging and tracing functionality which allows to study the various algorithms by examples.
A runtime configuration module controls the selection of mathemetical methods, logging information, and the tracing of data objects.
Compile time configuration module for code optimization.
A file interface which can be easily extended to new problem classes.
Source code for executable solver programs.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
