**Linear Programming**

by Jim Burke

**Publisher**: University of Washington 2012

**Description**:

An introductory course in linear programming. The four basic components of the course are modeling, solution methodology, duality theory, and sensitivity analysis. We focus on the simplex algorithm due to George Dantzig since it offers a complete framework for discussing both the geometry and duality theory for linear programs.
