<p>Experienced <b>AIMMS</b>, <b>AMPL</b>, or <b>GAMS</b> users will
likely find the modeling language easy to learn. &nbsp;These tools are for
solving Mixed Integer Nonlinear Programming (MINLP) problems.&nbsp; There are a number of software tools that can solve differential and algebraic equations (DAEs).&nbsp; These include <b>gProms</b>, <b>MATLAB</b>, <b>Modellica</b>, and others.&nbsp; <a href="http://apmonitor.com/compare.htm">A comparison of a gravity drained water tank model</a> is used a benchmark for these modeling languages.&nbsp; These software tools are very&nbsp;good at providing a flexible environment for DAE simulation.&nbsp; New users are generally impressed by the similarity to their native environments, the open-equation format, and performance gains for large-scale model simulation&nbsp;and optimization.</p>
