Hi everyone
In my project I'm currently using Mathematica Mathlink to solve minimizations like this:
Minimize[0.6(1  D1)^2 + 0.4(4  D2)^2, 0.4(4  D1)^2 + 0.6(1  D2)^2 <= 6 && 0.3(1  D1)^2 + 0.7(0  D2)^2 <= 6, {D1, D2}]
This however requires Mathematica to be installed on the computer, so I would like to change to Math.NET
Anyone knows what would be the equivalent in Math.NET?
Thanks in advance

Hi M00se,
As far as I understand Mathematica, this is specific instance of the more general class of quadratic minimization problems with quadratic constraints. Math.Net does not provide out of the box numerical optimization routines. You probably want to have a look
at Microsoft Solver Foundation (available for free: http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/solverfoundation).

Thanks
I'm going to try the Microsoft Solver Foundation, seems also pretty handy.
