AMPL Products

AMPL is A Mathematical Programming Language for solving optimization problems that integrates three main components. All three languages use the same concepts and syntax for streamlined application-building.

AMPL products extend your license for more ways to integrate AMPL into your applications.


The AMPL Integrated Development Environment, IDE, allows for commands to be typed at an AMPL prompt in the usual way. All installed solvers can be accessed directly through the IDE.


Our APIs ensure that you have a reliable and maintainable implementation as you embed your optimization models into applications.

Data Connectors

Get started with AMPL's data handlers to read and write data in the external formats of relational databases, spreadsheets, and CSV files.

Extended Function Library

Extend AMPL with over 300 functions chosen from the GNU Scientific Library, including scientific, statistical, and utility functions of many kinds, and a variety of random number generators.

Logic & Constraint Programming Extensions

Explore our logic & constraint programming solver and operators, lectures, and example files.


Test AMPL and popular solvers for free using a convenient online service.
