The NEOS Server offers SCIP
for the solution of global optimization problems in
format. Documentation for GAMS/SCIP is available on the GAMS SCIP webpage.
Using the NEOS Server with GAMS/SCIP
The user must submit a model in GAMS
format to solve a global optimization problem. For security purposes, the model
submitted must adhere to the following conventions:
If you are unfamiliar with GAMS, the
GAMS Documentation Center
includes a GAMS Tutorial and User's Guide.
Examples of models in GAMS
format can be found in the
GAMS Model Libraries.
- It must be self-contained, i.e., no $include or $batinclude statements.
- It may not execute external programs, i.e., no $call or execute statements.
- It may not create files, i.e., no put files or $echo statements.
The NEOS Server initially limits the amount of output generated in the
listing file by turning off the symbol and unique element list, symbol
cross references, and restricting the rows and columns listed to zero.
This behavior can be changed by specifying the appropriate options
in the model file. See the documentation on the
modeling language for further information.
