Abstract MCL is an optimization control language associated with the recently published MERLIN optimization package. It is developed so as to aid in constructing effective minimization strategies. It is very simple and easy to master. Supports Fortran-like operations, conditional and unconditional branching, multidimensional arrays, loops, statement functions, I/O operations and offers quite a few intrinsic functions. MERLIN has been further developed too, so that now it can be driven by the object co... Title of program: MCL Catalogue Id: ABHA_v1_0 Nature of problem Many problems in Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics as well as in Engineering and in other fields may be reduced to minimizing a function of several variables. MCL is a system designed to enable one to develop systematically efficient minimization strategies.
