Nonlinear constrained optimization refers to the problem of minimizing f (x) subject to x ∈ D, where D is a subset of R n and f is a continuous function from D to R. Thus, an input instance is a specification of D, called the feasible set, and f, called the objective function. The output from an optimization algorithm is either a point x *D, called an optimizer or global optimizer, such that f (x *) ≤ f (x) for all x ∈ D, or else a statement (preferably accompanied by a certificate) that no such x * exists. The terms minimizer and global minimizer are also used
