Citing MATLAB Optimization Toolbox (BibTex reference)

70 views (last 30 days)
Hi all.
I would like to cite the MATLAB Optimization Toolbox in my work since I am using the linear programming part of the toolbox to solve my optimizaiton problem. How does one cite it?
Since I am using LaTeX for the report, I intend to use a BibTex format.

I would use something like this
key = {MATLAB Optimization Toolbox},
title = {MATLAB Optimization Toolbox},
year = {<The year of your version, you can find it out using ver>}
note = {The MathWorks, Natick, MA, USA}
The note is the publisher and the address. You can modify it to your demands. "Don't take entries too seriously", as noted by the author of BibTeX in on page 12.

For comparison, I can just attach the format that is used to cite the well-known CVX toolbox:
author = {Michael Grant and Stephen Boyd},
title = {{CVX}: Matlab Software for Disciplined Convex Programming, version 2.1},
howpublished = {\url{}},
month = mar,
year = 2014
author = {Michael Grant and Stephen Boyd},
title = {Graph implementations for nonsmooth convex programs},
booktitle = {Recent Advances in Learning and Control},
series = {Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences},
editor = {V. Blondel and S. Boyd and H. Kimura},
publisher = {Springer-Verlag Limited},
pages = {95--110},
year = 2008,
note = {\url{}}
