Historically, ideas from linear programming have inspired many of the central concepts of optimization theory such as Duality, Decomposition and the importance of convexit usual and most intuitive form of describing a linear programming problem. When the problem involves “n” decision International Technology, Education and EnvironmentFile Size: KB. Guides in the application of linear programming to firm decision making, with the goal of giving decision-makers a better understanding of methods at their disposal Useful as a main resource or as a supplement in an economics or management science course, this comprehensive book addresses the deficiencies of other texts when it comes to covering linear programming .

The books that I recommend are: 1. Introduction to Linear Optimization by Dmitris Bertsimas and John Tsitsiklis 2. Linear and Nonlinear Programming by David G. Luenberger and Yinyu Ye As a caveat I would like to mention that my background is in s. Linear Programming And Game Theory is a comprehensive guide for students studying linear programming. Summary Of The Book. Linear Programming And Game Theory provides a rigorous approach towards the subject and is suitable for both experienced users and book contains chapters and exercises that are systematically arranged/5(4).

The present volume is intended to serve a twofold purpose. First, it provides a university text of Linear Programming for students of economics or operations research interested in the theory of production and cost and its practical applications; secondly, it is the author's hope that engineers, business executives, managers, and others responsible for the organization and planning of Brand: Springer-Verlag Wien. Nonlinear Programming contains the proceedings of a Symposium on Nonlinear Programming held in Madison, Wisconsin on May , This book emphasizes algorithms and related theories that lead to efficient computational methods for solving nonlinear programming problems. This compilation consists of 17 chapters.

And economics, have developed the theory behind \linear programming" and explored its applications [1]. This paper will cover the main concepts in linear programming, including examples when appropriate.

First, in Section 1 we will explore simple prop-erties, basic de nitions and theories of linear programs. In order to illustrate. Given these assumptions, linear programming is used in the theory of the firm for the solution of the following problems: 1. Maximization of Output: Let us suppose that a firm plans to produce a commodity Z, using X and Y inputs.

Its objective is to maximize output. It has two alternative production processes, С (capital-intensive) and L. The last time I taught linear programming I used Dave Rader's new book, Deterministic Operations Research, and was happy with it.

As for a comparison, Winston focuses on how the different methods work and gives lots of examples but doesn't spend much time on theory. Linear programming is a recently devised technique for providing specific numerical solutions of problems which earlier could be solved only in vague qualitative terms by using the apparatus of the general theory of the firm.

Linear programming has thus helped to bridge the gap between abstract economic theory and managerial decision-making in. The book covers linear programming theory and algorithms, network flows, an introduction to interior point methods and some modeling topics.

Prerequisites for this book include some background in linear algebra (the typical sophomore level introduction to linear algebra is enough), and some experience with proof based mathematics.
