For a one-semester course in Linear Programming for upper-level students with varying mathematical backgrounds.
Written to include three different mathematical levels, this text strikes the necessary balance for a class consisting of students with varying mathematical backgrounds. It covers the basics of Linear Programs and also includes an appendix that develops many advanced topics in mathematical programming for students who plan to go on to graduate-level study in this field. Many exercises of varying difficulty provide introductory students the opportunity to progress through the material at a steady pace, while advanced students can proceed to the more challenging material.
Enables non-mathematics majors to learn to use linear programming in their respective fields (business, economics, operations research, etc.).
Allows mathematics majors to learn the theory required for advanced study.
Provides challenging material to a wide range of students, each at his or her own level.
Provides an 'appetizer' for mathematics students, introducing them to advanced topics and reference of known methods for applied students
Demonstrates for students how to develop modeling as a skill rather than relying on their intuition to tackle problems.
Shows students how to prepare linear programs for solving by various computer packages and refers to websites where software or on-line solving is available.
