Microsoft.SolverFoundation.Solvers Namespace

Solver Foundation 3.0

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

The Microsoft.SolverFoundation.Solvers namespace contains classes and enumerations used by Microsoft Solver Foundation 2.1 to implement multiple solvers, such as the compact quasi-Newton solver, constraint satisfaction solver, interior point solver, and simplex solver. If you want to integrate your own solver, use the classes in the Microsoft.SolverFoundation.Services namespace.
