    Is anyone aware of iterative numerical optimzaiton routines in Java
    and/or Python? I'm looking for a routine similar to the fmincon in
    Matlab, powell in IDL, solver in Excel. There appears to be an
    unconstrained optimization routine in the book "A Numerical Library in
    Java for Scientists and Engineers" although I'd prefer a constrained
    routine. Any comments on the book would be helpful too since I'll
    probably buy it shortly.
