This book provides a comprehensive introduction to linear programming which encompasses all the major topics students will encounter in courses on the subject. The authors aim to teach both the underlying mathematical foundations and how these ideas are implemented in practice. The book illustrates all the concepts with both worked examples and plenty of exercises. In addition, Windows software is provided with the book so that students can try out numerical methods using the examples and exercises and hone their skills in interpreting the results. As a result, this will make an ideal textbook for all those coming to the subject for the first time. Authors'note: A problem recently found with the software is due to a bug in Formula One, the third party commercial software package that was used for the development of the interface. It occurs when the date currency, etc. format is set to a non-United States version. Please try setting your computer date/currency option to the United States. The new version of Formula One, when ready, will be posted on WWW.Graduate students in the fields of operations research, industrial engineering, and applied mathematics will find this volume of particular interest.
