Test Problems for Nonlinear Programming - User's Guide 

K. Schittkowski: Report, Department of Mathematics, University of Bayreuth (2011)
Abstract: The availability of nonlinear programming test problems is extremely important to test optimization codes or to develop new algorithms. We describe the usage of the Fortran subroutines for all 306 test problems of two previous collections of the author. The execution of the codes, the program organization, and numerical test results are presented to be able to compare own implementations.

The frequently cited Hock-Schittkowski collection is out of print, a copy is found here.
