MCP requires some nonlinear functionality; seems not really close to what GLPK can do.

Hello all

I have recently been talking to economists who

their use may have been a driving force behind its

A GPL'ed MCP solver is now available, written in
Matlab/Octave (Schmelzer 2012).  But no open model
translators, as far as I am aware.

Is the development of an MCP translator and solver
something that could be usefully tacked by GLPK?
Something for the roadmap?  Mostly thinking out
aloud here.

I should add that their seems to be a lot of
interest in Nash-Cournot models and such for
analysing and trying to understand electricity
