(Video) AGRODEP GAMS Training Lesson 5: Intermediate Syntax (English)


Lesson 5 introduces more complex syntax and explores VARIABLE types and constraints imposed upon VARIABLES. Users learn to define SETS in different ways, to map between different elements of SETS, and define BOUNDS for VARIABLES. This lesson includes an optimization problem developed by David Laborde of the International Food Policy Research Institute. Users are also introduced to the concept of running simulations and have the opportunity to run the model under different conditions.
