This unique reference/text details the theoretical and practical aspects of linear and integer programming - covering a wide range of subjects, including duality, optimality criteria, sensitivity analysis, and numerous solution techniques for linear programming problems.
Requiring only an elementary knowledge of set theory, trigonometry, and calculus, Linear and Integer Programming reflects both the problem-analyzing and problem-solving abilities of linear and integer programming...presents the more rigorous mathematical material in such a way that it can be easily skipped without disturbing the readability of the text...contains important pedagogical features such as a user-friendly, IBM-compatible computer software package for solving linear-programming problems, numerous case studies, fully worked examples, helpful end-of-chapter exercises, the answers to selected problems, key literature citations, and over 1375 equations, drawings, and tables...and more.
Linear and Integer programming is a fundamental reference for applied mathematicians, operations researchers, computer scientists, economists, and industrial engineers, as well as an ideal text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in this disciplines.
