New Premium Solver version 9.5 Products for Excel from Hearne Scientific Software

Supplier News

New 9.5 versions of Risk Solver Platform, Premium Solver Platform, Premium Solver, Risk Solver Premium and Risk Solver are a major new release, with a deeply parallelised software design to exploit the multi-core processors in modern PCs that allow analysis and solving of larger models faster than ever before.

Exploiting Multi-Core Processors

All parallelised algorithms are available in Risk Solver Platform and some are also available in Premium Solver Platform.

  • Multi-Core Monte Carlo Simulation:  Risk Solver Platform v9.5 will exploit multiple processor cores to further accelerate its already-fast vectorised Monte Carlo simulation.
  • Multi-Core Simulation Optimisation:  Risk Solver Platform v9.5 will also exploit multiple processor cores to speed up simulation optimisation – typically the most computationally-intensive method used to solve optimisation problems.
  • Multi-Core Global Optimisation:  When you use the Multistart methods for global optimisation with the GRG Nonlinear, LSGRG, LSSQP or KNITRO Solvers, Risk Solver Platform v9.5 will exploit multiple processor cores to run multiple nonlinear optimisations in parallel.
  • Multi-Core Nonlinear Optimisation:  When you solve a single smooth nonlinear optimisation with the GRG Nonlinear, LSGRG, LSSQP or KNITRO Solvers, Risk Solver Platform v9.5 is significantly faster. It exploits multiple processor cores to speed up gradient computations via parallelised automatic differentiation.
  • Multi-Core Mixed Integer Nonlinear Solutions:  Risk Solver Platform v9.5’s standard branch and bound algorithm, used by the GRG Nonlinear, LSGRG and LSSQP Solvers, has been parallelised to exploit multiple processor cores on mixed-integer nonlinear (MINLP) problems.
  • Multi-Core Non-Smooth Optimisation:  Risk Solver Platform v9.5 provides parallelised function evaluation and parallelised local search. These are exploited in a major way by the redesigned Evolutionary Solver

New 9.5 versions of Risk Solver Platform, Premium Solver Platform, Premium Solver, Risk Solver Premium and Risk Solver are available from Hearne Scientific Software .
