Anouther Open Source projects.
IBM just released an interesting Open Source project called COIN, Common
Optimization INterface, off its developerWorks site. Coin, developed by IBM
mathematical optimization researchers, which basically helps developers
write crasy mathmatical programs which can maximize everything from stock
portfolio returns to taveling distance to whatever.


This is IBM's reason for releasing COIN Open Source
COIN is an experiment to promote open source in the operations research
community. IBM is kicking off the experiment by establishing a repository
for source code and opening software to initially populate the repository.
The COIN team wants the community of users to contribute by developing new
code, reviewing and testing existing code, and submitting and fixing bugs.
The goal is to have project controlled by the community, rather than by the
IBM researchers.
