By K. L. Hoffman

As modelling efforts try and clear up difficulties regarding ever extra complicated structures, and as algorithms are built particularly to deal with difficulties having hundreds of thousands (or even thousands) of variables, the necessity for sound computational trying out and entire disclosure of experimental effects is either visible and rapid. This choice of papers displays either the present expertise on hand to mathematical programmers for fixing optimization difficulties, and mechanisms for trying out and making a choice on the standard of software program used. This trying out calls for appropriate attempt difficulties and the execution of a designed scan to figure out the potency, robustness, reliability and applicability of varied algorithms. Many points of computational mathematical programming are lined: the checking out of recent algorithms for optimizing capabilities of a unique shape, computational comparisons of identified algorithms, a initial computational overview of the recent projective approach, why decomposition equipment haven't been as profitable as initially expected, and so on.

Example text

Once someone sees that the software can be used for one thing, they’ll start to explore what else it can do on their own—and, Starting from What You Have 29 if you’re lucky, start filling in the documentation themselves. Which brings us to the next point... • Label the areas where the documentation is known to be incomplete. By showing the readers that you are aware of its deficiencies, you align yourself with their point of view. Your empathy reassures them that they don’t face a struggle to convince the project of what’s important.

Since anyone who uses the software will discover the deficiencies for themselves, it’s much better for them to be psychologically prepared— then the project will look like it has a solid knowledge of how it’s doing. Availability of documentation Documentation should be available from two places: online (directly from the web site), and in the downloadable distribution of the software (see “Packaging” in Chapter 7). It needs to be online, in browseable form, because people often read documentation before downloading software for the first time, as a way of helping them decide whether to download at all.

For a long time, these differences did not need to be carefully examined or articulated, but free software’s burgeoning success in the business world made the issue unavoidable. 8 The OSI felt not only that “free software” was potentially confusing, but that the word “free” was just one symptom of a general problem: that the movement needed a marketing program to pitch it to the corporate world, and that talk of morals and the social benefits of sharing would never fly in corporate boardrooms. In their own words: The Open Source Initiative is a marketing program for free software.
