There are many solvers claiming they are the best/fastest in their field. But there are many optimization classes and solvers for different purposes.
I always wanted to have a platform to let people discuss the best solver in their experiences. For example, I want to solve non-convex Quadratic Programming. It took me a while to realize that CPLEX does a pretty good job. But maybe someone will tell me X solver is also great, etc.
Also, solvers tend to show different outcomes in different programming languages. Matlab users suffer from this deeply. Therefore, I also think it would be great if people can discuss what kind of problems they solve with which solvers in what platform etc...
Is this feasible in SE? Can someone just post a survey-like question, collect answers, post the results etc?
