Software: Spike_O

The Spike_O toolbox is a collection of optimization routines . The first version of the toolbox was developed specifically for use with the SCS toolbox and is currently under expansion for other projects. It has been tested in Matlab (R2010a, R2012b, R2014b) and Octave (v3.6.2) and is is publicly available under the GPLv3 license.
