' This example formulates and solves the following simple bilinear model:
'
'     maximize    x
'     subject to  x + y + z <= 10
'                 x * y <= 2          (bilinear inequality)
'                 x * z + y * z == 1  (bilinear equality)
'                 x, y, z non-negative (x integral in second version)
