Root Optimization for a Polynomial Family with One Affine Constraint

A MATLAB package for global minimization of the root abscissa or the root radius of a monic polynomial family with a single affine constraint on its coefficients. The method is documented in this paper. The main routine is affpolymin.m , and examples from the paper are generated by the routine runExamplesFromPaper.m .
