Abstract:

Scientific Work Completed 1 We are currently investigating the scope of introducing relational database facility, within our Computer Assisted Mathematical Programming Modelling System CAMPS. We plan to introduce a modern user interface, such as window tools, for system control aimed at modellers with no programming skill. An additional support system, that is programmers interface, is also planned. CAMPS is a program generator system. With this interface non-standard modelling applications may be constructed by analysts. 2 We have investigated methods by which nonlinear functions which are not variable separable may be, after suitable algebraic manipulation, put in a variable separable form. While not concerning ourselves with the most computationally efficient representation of nonlinear function for optimization, we have endeavoured to create a general algebraic representation leading to computer support for the modeller. We have already created partial computer support for special ordered sets of type one and type two. 3 Currently, we are investigating the integration of the system with a computer assisted analysis system. We have a working version and a full description of this system and are generally examining the scope of pre-analysis of the model before optimization.
