I was wondering what the status of the non-linear optimisation tests is.
I found this old thread from 2010, which seems to suggest that the code
has major issues.
Today I enabled the disabled NonLinearOptimization test routines and
they still failed. However, I also implemented the failing tests into
the tester of the original MINPACK routines from netlib, and the results
are almost identical to the Eigen results.
I guess my question is really, why the tests are disabled instead of
adapted to the new results, if the MINPACK code (which is the basis for
the original implementation as far as I understand) produces very
I used gcc-4.6 and gfortran-4.6 to compile.
If anybody is interested in the results, I can post them along with the
modified code that produced them.
