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. 

Robert Fourer

Robert Fourer's career has been devoted to the theory and practice of optimization, going back to the 1970s when he worked at the National Bureau of Economic Research and studied Operations Research at Stanford University.  He was a member of the Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences faculty at Northwestern University for over three decades, during which  time  he  participated  in  the  invention  of  the  AMPL  modeling  language  while  on sabbatical at Bell Laboratories.  In 2002 he co-founded AMPL Optimization Inc. to advance the development, marketing, and support of the...Read more
