The NEOS Server offers MOSEK for the solution of linear programming (LP)
problems in GAMS format.
MOSEK is designed to solve large-scale optimization problems; the technical strength of MOSEK is its state-of-the-art interior-point optimizer. MOSEK provides
primal and dual simplex optimizers for LP problems. For more information,
visit the MOSEK website.
Using the NEOS Server for MOSEK
The user must submit a model in GAMS
format to solve an LP. For security purposes, the model
submitted must adhere to the following conventions:
If you are unfamiliar with GAMS, the
gives a quick introduction to the essentials of a GAMS model and the
output provided when the model is solved. Examples of models in GAMS
format can be found in the
GAMS model library and an
is also available.
- 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.
When needed, this information can be obtained by specifying appropriate options in the model. See the
documentation on the
modeling language for further information.
