AMPL/KNITRO is a large, sparse, linear and nonlinear programming solver and a general purpose solver for nonlinear optimization. It is designed to handle large problems and is effective for solving linear, quadratic, and nonlinear smooth optimization problems, both convex and nonconvex. SNOPT is highly effective for problems with a nonlinear objective function and large numbers of sparse linear constraints.
