* Did you select a task from our list of proposals and ideas?
''yes.''
** If yes, what task did you choose? Please describe what part of it you especially want to focus on if you can already provide this information.
''See http://wiki.octave.org/Summer_of_Code_Project_Ideas#Nonlinear_and_constrained_least_squares'' Discussion and work on project can be seen here.
''http://octave.1599824.n4.nabble.com/GSoC-2015-Optimization-Package-Non-linear-and-constrained-least-squares-lsqcurvefit-lsqlin-lsqnonlin-tt4668777.html''
 
To summarize, adding functions to the Optim package for Octave using existing back-ends available. And adding another back-end as a stretch goal.
* Please provide a rough estimated timeline for your work on the task.
=== ***GSoC Application period ===
'' 'quadprog' wrapper around 'qp' done ''
'' 'lsqlin' using 'qp' done''
=== ***Start of GSoC (May) ===
'' 'lsqnonlin' using 'nonlin_residmin' ''
'' 'fmincon' using 'nonlin_min', ''
=== ***Midterm ===
'' test cases for these functions [http://wiki.octave.org/Tests] ''
'' instead of wrappers for top-level functions like qp. Call back-end function (__qp__) to be able to extract lambda.'' '' See [http://octave.1599824.n4.nabble.com/GSoC-2015-Optimization-Package-Non-linear-and-constrained-least-squares-lsqcurvefit-lsqlin-lsqnonlin-tp4668777p4669284.html] ''
=== ***Stretch Goals ===
'' Further missing functions in Optim package. See [http://wiki.octave.org/Optimization_package]''
