Barzilai-Borwein spectral methods for solving nonlinear system of equations, and for optimizing nonlinear objective functions subject to simple constraints. A tutorial style introduction to this package is available in a vignette on the CRAN download page or, when the package is loaded in an R session, with vignette("BB").

Maintainer: Paul Gilbert and Erik Meijer
Author(s): Ravi Varadhan [aut, cph, trl], Paul Gilbert [aut, cre], Marcos Raydan [ctb] (with co-authors, wrote original algorithms in fortran.
