transeql.gms : Transportation model as equilibrium problem

**Description**

Dantzig's original transportation model TRNSPORT (in GAMS Model Library) is reformulated using EMP's equilibrium system with multiple agents. It reproduces the results of TRANSMCP (in GAMS Model Library) which uses a linear complementarity approach. As in TRANSMCP, we solve four models: 1. original fixed-demand LP to get calibration data 2. reproduce fixed-demand results with flexible-demand model 3. counter-factual with fixed-demand model 4. counter-factual with flexible-demand model Dantzig, G B, Chapter 3.3.

$Title Transportation model as equilibrium problem (TRANSEQL,SEQ=45)
$Ontext
Dantzig's original transportation model TRNSPORT (in GAMS Model Library) is
reformulated using EMP's equilibrium system with multiple agents. It reproduces
the results of TRANSMCP (in GAMS Model Library) which uses a linear
complementarity approach.
As in TRANSMCP, we solve four models:
1. original fixed-demand LP to get calibration data
2. reproduce fixed-demand results with flexible-demand model
3. counter-factual with fixed-demand model
4. counter-factual with flexible-demand model
