# Light version
pip install nullspace_optimizer

# Full dependencies including colored output and plotting features
pip install nullspace_optimizer[colored,matplotlib]

Running examples

A few examples of 2-d inequality constrained optimization are available in the `examples' folder. They can be run from command line with

python -m nullspace_optimizer.examples.ex0
python -m nullspace_optimizer.examples.ex1
python -m nullspace_optimizer.examples.ex2

and so on.

For instance, running python -m nullspace_optimizer.examples.ex1 should produce the following figure: Null space gradient flow trajectories


Runs with python 3.6 and the following libraries:

  • numpy (>=1.12.1)
  • scipy (>=0.19.1)
  • cvxopt (>=1.2.1)

Optional dependencies:

  • colored (>=1.3.93) (for colored output)
  • matplotlib (>=2.0.2) (for displaying figures while running examples)
