  • get and set AMPL options

Example 3: Assign all data to a model and solve it

This example shows how to:

  • Assign all the data necessary to generate a model instance programmatically

Example 4: Build an efficient frontier

This example shows how to:

  • build an efficient frontier by repeteatly solve a portfolio problem in AMPL

Example 5: Simple heuristic

This example shows how to:

  • Do a simple heuristics for solving a QMIP problem, using the relaxed solution as a hint
