Sustainability Through Soccer – This book, which my brother wrote, is worth a read if you are interested in either soccer or sustainability. Somehow he managed to link my lack of heading ability to a sustainability concept.
NEOS-Matlab – In some of my work, I have used the NEOS server (see below) to conduct simulations and Matlab for data handling and display purposes. To streamline this workflow, I created a set of Matlab utilities that interface with the NEOS server using XML-RPC. The folder available from the link above contains simplified versions of these utilities, and demonstrates how an AMPL model can be submitted and retrieved from the NEOS server from Matlab. Feel free to use and adapt this code for your own purposes.
Computational Tools that I Have Used
NEOS – Free optimization server with access to many leading solvers
OPTI toolbox – Suite of solvers and other optimization utilities for Matlab
PATH – Solver for complementarity problems with interfaces to AMPL and Matlab
