ILOG CPLEX 11.0 User's Manual > Meet ILOG CPLEX

ILOG CPLEX offers C, C++, Java, and .NET libraries that solve linear programming (LP) and related problems. Specifically, it solves linearly or quadratically constrained optimization problems where the objective to be optimized can be expressed as a linear function or a convex quadratic function. The variables in the model may be declared as continuous or further constrained to take only integer values.

This preface introduces the ILOG CPLEX User's Manual. The manual assumes that you are familiar with ILOG CPLEX from reading Getting Started with ILOG CPLEX and from following the tutorials there. This preface covers these topics:
