How can I learn more about AMPL?

The AMPL book is the most comprehensive source of information on AMPL. It is written in the form of a textbook with an appendix for reference, in contrast to the more common format of a reference manual with some tutorial material at the front. Virtually all language features are illustrated by continuing, meaningful examples, and additional exercises are provided. Chapters can be freely downloaded, and hardbound printed copies can be purchased.

For working through the examples and exercises in the book, a free size-limited student edition of AMPL may be downloaded. Courses using AMPL can get time-limited but size-unlimited versions of AMPL and solvers through the AMPL for Courses program.
