Description: pyOptSparse: A Python framework for large-scale constrained nonlinear optimization of sparse systems. pyOptSparse is an object-oriented framework for formulating and solving nonlinear constrained optimization problems in an efficient, reusable, and portable manner. It is a fork of pyOpt that uses sparse matrices throughout the code to more efficiently handle large-scale optimization problems. Many optimization techniques can be used in pyOptSparse, including both gradient-based and gradient-free methods. A visualization tool called OptView also comes packaged with pyOptSparse, which shows the optimization history through an interactive GUI
