Introduction to GAMS and GAMSIDE


Open Access Training


This page provides open access to training materials that provide an introduction to GAMS and GAMSIDE. The materials are adapted from the standard GAMS tutorial to provide training that complements the GAMS tutorial. The materials require the use of a USER LIBRARY; so studying the instructions on the operation of a User Library is necessary.


ALL these exercises only require the demo version of GAMS that is freely available from the GAMS website. Download GAMS from here.


This material is UNSUPPORTED.
