MPCC can be solved with specific MPCC codes or in its nonlinear equivalent formulation (NLP) using NLP solvers. Two NLP solvers - NPSOL and the line search filter SQP - are used to solve a collection of test problems in AMPL. Both are based on SQP (Sequential Quadratic Programming) philosophy but the second one uses a line search filter scheme.
