Abstract: This paper draws from our experience in developing the AMPL modeling language, to show where numerical issues have been crucial to modeling language design and where modeling language advances have strongly influenced the design of solvers.

Keywords: modeling languages, numerical analysis, presolve, rounding, Hessian computations, mathematical programs with equilibrium constraints
