Material type: TextTextPublisher: New Jersey Prentice-Hall 1994Description: xx + 666 p.ISBN: 0131837575Subject(s): Linear ProgrammingDDC classification: 519.72 Summary: In this introductory text on linear programming, a thorough, up-to-date, and comprehensive summary of the philosophies and procedures used in the modeling, solution, and analysis of so-called linear programming problems is provided. The text is for the senior-level college student or for the first-year graduate student having some previous exposure to linear algebra - and earlier versions (or selected portions) has been used in such courses over the past decade. An associated solutions manual is provided for all exercises and is available to those adopting the text for classroom use. In this text, the emphasis is to provide a basis for the understanding and appreciation of the truly remarkable power of the linear programming method. As such, emphasis is not placed on the computer implementation of the tools associated with the overall methodology. However, there now exist numerous, inexpensive, commercial linear programming packages that the instructor and/or student may wish to use to accompany the text. Although we certainly advocate such computational support, we would hope that the main emphasis is, and will be, that of the understanding of the fundamental concepts, theory, and solution methods that serve to comprise the linear programming method.
