Nonlinear Optimization Applications Using the GAMS Technology by Neculai Andrei

This is a listing of the models available in the on-line model library (NOALIB) based on the book Nonlinear Optimization Applications Using the GAMS Technology by Neculai Andrei. The library contains a selection of 40 models from a wide spectrum of nonlinear optimization applications expressed in GAMS. The book and library emphasize the local solutions of the large-scale, complex, continuous nonlinear optimization applications, and the abundant examples in GAMS are highlighted by those involving ODEs, PDEs, and optimal control. The collection of these examples will be useful for software developers and testers.
