NOMAD is a C++ code that implements the MADS algorithm (Mesh Adaptive Direct Search) for difficult blackbox optimization problems. Such problems occur when the functions to optimize are costly computer simulations with no derivatives.


  • Blackbox, nonsmooth optimization
  • Nonlinear Constrained optimization
  • Single or biobjective optimization
  • Continuous, integer, boolean and categorical variables
  • Mesh Adaptive Direct Search algorithm
  • Pattern Search
  • Direct Search
  • Parallelism with MPI
