\$title Solving the Transportation LP Problem using SDP (TRNSSDP,SEQ=340) \$onText This problem finds a least cost shipping schedule that meets requirements at markets and supplies at factories. The semidefinite programming solver CSDP is used instead of traditional LP algorithm. The communication with CSDP requires the setup of matrix data structures. In a sense this GAMS model functions as a matrix generator. Dantzig, G B, Chapter 3.3. In Linear Programming and Extensions. Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey, 1963.
