Kona is a library for nonlinear constrained optimization. It was designed primarily for partial-differential-equation (PDE) governed optimization problems; however it is suitable for any (sufficiently smooth) problem where the objective function and/or constraints require the solution of a computational expensive state equation. Kona is also useful for developing new optimization algorithms for PDE-governed optimization as a result of its abstracted vector and matrix implementations.
