[ANN] MATLAB fmincon now available in Python

Hi all,
current state of Python <-> MATLAB connection soft doesn't allow passing of function handlers, however, a walkaround has been implemented via some tricks, so now MATLAB function fmincon is available in Python-written OpenOpt and FuncDesigner frameworks (with possibility of dense/sparse automatic differentiation, example: http://trac.openopt.org/openopt/browser/PythonPackages/FuncDesigner/FuncDesigner/tests/fmincon1000.py ).

Future plans include MATLAB fsolve, ode23, ode45 (unlike scipy fsolve and ode they can handle sparse matrices), fgoalattain, maybe global optimization toolbox solvers.

I intend to post the message to several forums, so to keep discussion in a single place please use OpenOpt forum thread

Regards, D.
