Book Description

12 Dec 2002 0534388094 978-0534388096 2nd Revised edition
AMPL is a language for large-scale optimization and mathematical programming problems in production, distribution, blending, scheduling, and many other applications. Combining familiar algebraic notation and a powerful interactive command environment, AMPL makes it easy to create models, use a wide variety of solvers, and examine solutions. Though flexible and convenient for rapid prototyping and development of models, AMPL also offers the speed and generality needed for repeated large-scale production runs. This book, written by the creators of AMPL, is a complete guide for modelers at all levels of experience. It begins with a tutorial on widely used linear programming models, and presents all of AMPL's features for linear programming with extensive examples. Additional chapters cover network, nonlinear, piecewise-linear, and integer programming; database and spreadsheet interactions; and command scripts. Most chapters include exercises. Download free versions of AMPL and several solvers from www.ampl.com for experimentation, evaluation, and education. The Web site also lists vendors of the commercial version of AMPL and numerous solvers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what expected 2 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I thought it was just a previous issue of a current textbook on the powerful AMPL language. Unfortunately, this is just a "How to Install and Run" an old now Windows version of the language. Anyway, I do not think that the seller could have known, but I do not think there is any reason for someone to buy it at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Companion for Great Software 3 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Most software "companions" (more than a manual...not quite a book) really do not do justice to the software. Quite the contrary for the AMPL guide. AMPL (the language) is a *very* powerful and *very* easy to use Optimization package. It interfaces with most of the major solvers. Users program in AMPL which is more or less pseudocode and then solve LP, nonlinear, combinatorial, integer, etc. programs. Unlike most software packages, it is both robust and easy to use. Likewise with the companion/book. There are many great, easy to follow examples, and it clearly explains the intrecacies of the language. A must use software and most own book for anyone doing any optimization work.

5.0 out of 5 stars The AMPL bible 3 Oct 2010
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you're using or learning how to use AMPL, fret no more. This is the only book AMPL users should have. Its comprehensive, and gives a lot of good examples. Ideal for both beginner and advance AMPL programmers. You end up using the index in the back for reference after you've become more familiar with AMPL. There's isnt another AMPL book out there. This is THE ONE.

I have to say that this book is a powerful tool to learn basic optimization/programming + AMPL!
This is the only book AMPL users should have. It is comprehensive, user-friendly and gives a lot of good examples. Ideal for both beginners and advance AMPL programmers. Also suitable for self-directed learning.
