What is AMPL for Non-Profits?
The AMPL system
All AMPL licenses provide you with the powerful optimization system of writing AMPL models with our IDE, allows you to connect your data from databases, spreadsheets and CSV files
AMPL IDE is a ready-to-go visual development environment with built-in controls for optimization model development and testing.
Integrate your optimization models with spreadsheet and relational sources, locally or in the cloud. AMPL’s table handlers establish fast connections for data input and result output.
Try out the features of on all the best solvers, without changing your model or data. AMPL’s standard interface lets you focus first on modeling and then choose the optimization engine that meets your needs.
Build optimization into your enterprise systems or software products, using AMPL’s application programming interfaces. AMPL offers fast connections to Python, R, C++, C#, MATLAB, and Java, while maintaining your model in its
original, readable form.
Extended Function Library
This library extends AMPL with over 300 functions chosen from the GNU Scientific Library, including scientific, statistical, and utility functions of many kinds. Once installed and declared, these functions may be applied to any arguments anywhere in an AMPL model or script.
Master the AMPL language and system quickly with our introductory materials, examples, and documentation. The AMPL book provides a complete tutorial introduction (and it’s great for teaching, too).
Extensive documentation for newcomers and experts alike. Learn how to install, use, integrate and deploy AMPL models and applications.
