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
@misc(MatlabOTB,
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 http://texdoc.net/texmf-dist/doc/bibtex/base/btxdoc.pdf on page 12.

For comparison, I can just attach the format that is used to cite the well-known CVX toolbox: http://cvxr.com/cvx/citing/
@misc{cvx,
author = {Michael Grant and Stephen Boyd},
title = {{CVX}: Matlab Software for Disciplined Convex Programming, version 2.1},
howpublished = {\url{http://cvxr.com/cvx}},
month = mar,
year = 2014
}
@incollection{gb08,
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{http://stanford.edu/~boyd/graph_dcp.html}}
}
