NEOS Interfaces to MOSEK

WWW Form & Sample Submissions


The NEOS Server offers MOSEK for the solution of linear programming (LP) problems in AMPL 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 AMPL format to solve an LP. The examples section of the AMPL website provides examples of models in AMPL format.

The LP problem must be specified by a model file with the options of a data file and a commands file. If the commands file is specified, it must contain the AMPL solve; command. However, the commands file must not contain the model or data commands. The model and data files are renamed internally by NEOS.

The commands file may include option settings for MOSEK along with AMPL commands. To specify solver options, add

option mosek_options "OPTIONS";

where OPTIONS is a list of one or more of the MOSEK options, which are listed in the MOSEK Optimization Tools manual.
