Pyomo, an open-source optimization modeling system in PythonOptimization

We describe Pyomo, an open source tool for modeling optimization applications in Python. Pyomo can be used to deﬁne symbolic problems, create concrete problem instances, and solve these instances with standard solvers. Pyomo provides a capability that is commonly associated with algebraic modeling languages such as AMPL, AIMMS, and GAMS, but Pyomo’s modeling objects are embedded within a full-featured high-level programming language with a rich set of supporting libraries. Pyomo leverages the capabilities of the Coopr software library, which integrates Python packages for deﬁning optimizers, modeling optimization applications, and managing computational experiments.
