Modeling and Solving Linear Programming with R By Vicenc Fernandez, Jose M Sallan, Oriol Lordan
Paperback: $10.81
Prints in 3-5 business days
Linear programming is one of the most extensively used techniques in the toolbox of quantitative methods of optimization. One of the reasons of the popularity of linear programming is that it allows... More > to model a large variety of situations with a simple framework. Furthermore, a linear program is relatively easy to solve and it allows to solve most linear programs efficiently, and the Karmarkar interior-point method allows a more efficient solving of some kinds of linear programming. The power of linear programming is greatly enhanced when came the opportunity of solving integer and mixed integer linear programming. In this book we provide a brief introduction to linear programming with a set of exercises that introduce some applications of linear programming. We also provide an introduction to solve linear programming in R. For each problem a possible solution through linear programming is introduced, together with the code to solve it in R and its numerical solution.< Less

Linear Programming for Beginners By Doris Lloyd Grosh
eBook (PDF): $15.00

This book fills a gap in the linear programming literature, by explaining the steps that are illustrated but not always fully explained in every elementary operations book — the steps that lead... More > from the elementary and intuitive graphical method of solution to the more advanced simplex tableau method. Most of the world, even those technically trained, can get along very well by seeing a few illustrations of simple linear programming problems solved graphically, followed by instruction in the use of computer software for solving real-world problems. But there needs to be a coterie of initiates who understand the process well enough to explain it to others, to know what the pitfalls, ramifications and special cases are, and to provide further developments. I have used an informal narrative style with a number of worked out examples and detailed explanations, to put the topic within reach.< Less
