Material type: TextSeries: Wiley - Interscience series in discrete mathematics and optimizationPublisher: England John Wiley & Sons 1986Description: xi, 471p. With indexISBN: 9780471982326Subject(s): Linear programming | Integer programming | Applied mathematics | Mathematics | Operations research - EngineeringDDC classification: 519.72 Summary: Theory of Linear and Integer Programming Alexander Schrijver Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica, Amsterdam, The Netherlands This book describes the theory of linear and integer programming and surveys the algorithms for linear and integer programming problems, focusing on complexity analysis. It aims at complementing the more practically oriented books in this field. A special feature is the author's coverage of important recent developments in linear and integer programming. Applications to combinatorial optimization are given, and the author also includes extensive historical surveys and bibliographies. The book is intended for graduate students and researchers in operations research, mathematics and computer science. It will also be of interest to mathematical historians. https://www.wiley.com/en-us/Theory+of+Linear+and+Integer+Programming-p-9780471982326Item type | Current location | Item location | Collection | Call number | Status | Date due | Barcode |
