Introduction to Linear Programming

Applications and Extensions

Stressing the use of several software packages based on simplex method variations, this text teaches linear programming's four phases through actual practice. It shows how to decide whether LP models should be applied, set up appropriate models, use software to solve them, and examine solutions to a

Linear programming (LP) encompasses several activities. LP includes
recognizing whether or not a problem that you wish to solve can be modeled
effectively as a linear problem. If a linear model is appropriate for the problem, LP
includes ...
