MOSEK is employed extensively in the financial industry to solve optimization problems arising in connection with Markowitz portfolio optimization and related problems. See our Portfolio Optimization Resource Page for links to tutorials, examples, code samples, and the MOSEK Portfolio Optimization Cookbook.
MOSEK is a popular choice in forestry due to its powerful and reasonably priced linear optimizer. Particularly, many customers of Remsoft Woodstock software have chosen MOSEK as their standard optimization solution. If you want to use MOSEK together with Woodstock, we suggest you obtain MOSEK through Remsoft. Otherwise, follow the normal trial procedure.
