Solution

See here how the above problem is formulated using Eigen. Then it can be solved with, e.g. Ipopt, as:

   1 int main() {
   2 
   3   // Define the solver independent problem
   4   Problem nlp;
   5   nlp.AddVariableSet  (std::make_shared<ExVariables>());
   6   nlp.AddConstraintSet(std::make_shared<ExConstraint>());
   7   nlp.AddCostSet      (std::make_shared<ExCost>());
   8 
   9   // Initialize solver and options
  10   IpoptSolver ipopt;
  11   ipopt.SetOption("linear_solver", "mumps");
  12   ipopt.SetOption("jacobian_approximation", "exact");
  13 
  14   // Solve
  15   solver.Solve(nlp);
  16 
  17   std::cout << nlp.GetOptVariables()->GetValues().transpose() << std::endl;
  18 }
