New Interface Developments with the AMPL Modeling Language & System

CAST Division
Originally delivered Jan 28, 2014
A  modeling  language  provides  a  powerful  yet  convenient  interface  to  number-crunching "solvers"  of  large-scale  optimization  problems.   But what  is the  interface to the modeling language?   It turns out that several  kinds of  interfaces  are needed for different purposes, ranging  from  interactive  interfaces  for  development  to  programming  interfaces  for deployment.  This presentation will illustrate a variety of realistic possibilities using the AMPL modeling language and its recent extensions.
