GIDEN is an interactive software environment designed to facilitate the visualization of network optimization problems, solutions, and algorithms. (Screen shots of the GIDEN software are available here.) Features of GIDEN include the following:
GIDEN: This is the current version of GIDEN, which is available as a Java application. The software can be used on any Java-enabled computing platform with an available Java virtual machine (see FAQ for more info). Screen shots of the GIDEN software are available here.
GIDEN 1.0 Demo: For users who prefer a web interface, we are providing an older (October 1997) applet version of the GIDEN software. Please note that we do not support this version of GIDEN, which is substantially different from the current release.
The GIDEN project team was organized through the Industrial Engineering and
Management Sciences Department at Northwestern University. The
primary participants are
|Collette R. Coullard||Lake Superior State University|
|David S. Dilworth||Systems Research|
|Jonathan H. Owen||Northwestern University, General Motors R&D|
The development team gratefully acknowledges essential support for the
GIDEN project from the following organizations:
|Office of Naval Research|
|Sun Microsystems, Inc.|
|Optimization Technology Center|
|Committee of Institutional Cooperation|
|National Science Foundation|
|Zero G Software, Inc. (makers of InstallAnywhere)|
Several other individuals have contributed to the project through their substantial testing efforts or through comments and suggestions that have resulted in the improvement of GIDEN.
