Comments on Evaluating Algorithms and Codes for Mathematical Programming
In this paper we comment on comparative computational studies for mathematical programming, in particular the Papers by Miele and Gonzalez , Sandgren and Ragsdell , and Schittkowski , and give some of our views on this subject. We suggest the papers by Gill and Murray  and Moré , and the book they are contained in (Fosdick ), as other important reading on this subject.
