The NLMIXED Procedure |

**BOUNDS***b_con [ , b_con... ]***;**

where | b_con := | number operator parameter_list operator number |

or | b_con := | number operator parameter_list |

or | b_con := | parameter_list operator number |

and | operator := | <=, <, >=, or > |

Boundary constraints are specified with a BOUNDS statement. One- or two-sided boundary constraints are allowed. The list of boundary constraints are separated by commas. For example,

bounds 0 <= a1-a9 X <= 1, -1 <= c2-c5; bounds b1-b10 y >= 0;

You can specify more than one BOUNDS statement. If you specify more than one lower (upper) bound for the same parameter, the maximum (minimum) of these is taken.

If the maximum *l*_{j} of all lower bounds
is larger than the minimum of all upper bounds *u*_{j}
for the same variable , the boundary constraint
is replaced by defined
by the minimum of all upper bounds specified for .
