Getting Started

The Constrained Optimization MT module contains a set of procedures for the solution of the optimization problem.

GAUSS version 16+ is required to use these routines.

The Constrained Optimization MT 2.0 version number is stored in a global variable:


3x1 matrix the first element contains the major version number, the second element the minor version number, and the third element the revision number.

If you contact technical support, you may be asked for the version of your Constrained Optimization MT license.


If there is a README.comt file, it contains any last-minute information on the Constrained Optimization MT 2.0 procedures. Please read it before using them.


In order to use the procedures in Constrained Optimization MT or COMT module, the COMT library must be active. This is done by including ‘comt’ in the library statement at the top of your program or command file:

library comt;

This enables GAUSS to find the COMT procedures.
