```My guess is that fee[m] is a const/param, so can you rewrite your constraint to
be the following?

fee[m]*fee[m] = 1000 + (100 + (sum {n in N} (n mod 47))) * (sum {l > in L}
prod[l,m]);

Only linear constraints are allowed while sqrt makes the constraint non-linear.
However, using sqrt *below* the solve statement, i.e. when all the variables
have been computed, is allowed.
