Benchmarking optimization software – a (Hi)story. (English) Zbl 1453.90003
Summary: For more than twenty years, we are benchmarking optimization software. In late 2018, an event had a major impact (the “story”) on this service which had gained considerable notoriety. The history up to this point is sketched and the developments to late 2019 and hopefully beyond are described.
