[Ipopt] How to get the symbolic Hessian

Hi Xue,

Extracting the symbolic Hessian directly from AMPL may not be possible due
to the fact that it is computed only when needed using automatic
differentiation included in the AMPL library. However, you may be able to
extract the Hessian at a given point using the example 'solver' gjh freely
available from the Netlib library at

For more info you may want to check out (both by DM Gay)

I hope this helps,
