Includes one IBM/PC floppy disk. System Requirements: Monochrome monitors, IBM-compatible machines, minimum: 286 IBM, DOS 2.0 or higher. This book gives a complete, concise introduction to the theory and applications of linear programming. It emphasizes the practical applications of mathematics, and makes the subject more accessible to individuals with varying mathematical abilities. It is one of the first rigorous linear programming texts that does not require linear algebra as a prerequisite. In addition, this text contains a floppy disk containing the program SIMPLEX, designed to help students solve problems using the computer. Key Features * Less rigorous mathematically - will appeal to individuals with varying mathematical abilities * Includes a floppy disk containing the program SIMPLEX and an appendix to help students solve problems using the computer * Includes chapters on network analysis and dynamic programming - topics of great interest to business majors and industrial engineers * Includes modem applications - selected computer programs for solving various max/min applicationsSultan, Alan is the author of 'Linear Programming: An Introduction with Applications' with ISBN 9780126763508 and ISBN 012676350X.
