Linear Programming: Methods and Applications
Clear and comprehensive, this volume introduces theoretical, computational, and applied concepts and is useful both as text and as a reference book. Considerations of theoretical and computational methods include the general linear programming problem, the simplex computational procedure, the revised simplex method, the duality problems of linear programming degeneracy procedures, parametric linear programming and sensitivity analysis, and additional computational techniques. The treatment of applications covers the transportation problem and general linear programming applications, and a final part examines nonlinear programming. Numerical examples and exercises with selected answers appear in every chapter.
