The authoritative guide to modeling and solving complex problemswith linear programming—extensively revised, expanded, andupdated The only book to treat both linear programming techniques andnetwork flows under one cover, Linear Programming and NetworkFlows, Fourth Edition has been completely updated with thelatest developments on the topic. This new edition continues tosuccessfully emphasize modeling concepts, the design and analysisof algorithms, and implementation strategies for problems in avariety of fields, including industrial engineering, managementscience, operations research, computer science, andmathematics. The book begins with basic results on linear algebra and convexanalysis, and a geometrically motivated study of the structure ofpolyhedral sets is provided. Subsequent chapters include coverageof cycling in the simplex method, interior point methods, andsensitivity and parametric analysis. Newly added topics in theFourth Edition include: The cycling phenomenon in linear programming and the geometry ofcycling Duality relationships with cycling Elaboration on stable factorizations and implementationstrategies Stabilized column generation and acceleration of Benders andDantzig-Wolfe decomposition methods Line search and dual ascent ideas for the out-of-kilteralgorithm Heap implementation comments, negative cost circuit insights,and additional convergence analyses for shortest path problems The authors present concepts and techniques that are illustratedby numerical examples along with insights complete with detailedmathematical analysis and justification. An emphasis is placed onproviding geometric viewpoints and economic interpretations as wellas strengthening the understanding of the fundamental ideas. Eachchapter is accompanied by Notes and Referencessections that provide historical developments in addition tocurrent and future trends. Updated exercises allow readers to testtheir comprehension of the presented material, and extensivereferences provide resources for further study. Linear Programming and Network Flows, Fourth Edition isan excellent book for linear programming and network flow coursesat the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also avaluable resource for applied scientists who would like to refreshtheir understanding of linear programming and network flowtechniques.

An accessible treatment of the modeling and solution of integerprogramming problems, featuring modern applications andsoftware In order to fully comprehend the algorithms associated withinteger programming, it is important to understand not onlyhow algorithms work, but also why they work.Applied Integer Programming features a unique emphasis onthis point, focusing on problem modeling and solution usingcommercial software. Taking an application-oriented approach, thisbook addresses the art and science of mathematical modeling relatedto the mixed integer programming (MIP) framework and discusses thealgorithms and associated practices that enable those models to besolved most efficiently. The book begins with coverage of successful applications,systematic modeling procedures, typical model types, transformationof non-MIP models, combinatorial optimization problem models, andautomatic preprocessing to obtain a better formulation. Subsequentchapters present algebraic and geometric basic concepts of linearprogramming theory and network flows needed for understandinginteger programming. Finally, the book concludes with classical andmodern solution approaches as well as the key components forbuilding an integrated software system capable of solvinglarge-scale integer programming and combinatorial optimizationproblems. Throughout the book, the authors demonstrate essential conceptsthrough numerous examples and figures. Each new concept oralgorithm is accompanied by a numerical example, and, whereapplicable, graphics are used to draw together diverse problems orapproaches into a unified whole. In addition, features of solutionapproaches found in today's commercial software are identifiedthroughout the book. Thoroughly classroom-tested, Applied Integer Programmingis an excellent book for integer programming courses at theupper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It also serves as awell-organized reference for professionals, software developers,and analysts who work in the fields of applied mathematics,computer science, operations research, management science, andengineering and use integer-programming techniques to model andsolve real-world optimization problems.
