Linear Programming for the Non-Mathematician
An Illustrated Guide to Linear Programming
An effective introduction to Linear Programming
Great intro to Linear Programming By the way, how can anyone expect a book like this to tell someone how to apply linear programming. Doing that requires a lot more technical training and there are other more detailed and more expensive books that explain how to apply linear programming. This book is a great introduction a complicated subject. You will enjoy this book if your expectations are reasonable.
Good, but a reprint from 1970 |

Editorial Review Product Description The book is carefully written. Specific examples and concretealgorithms precede more abstract topics. Topics are clearly developedwith a large number of numerical examples worked out in detail. Moreover, Linear Programming: Foundations and Extensionsunderscores the purpose of optimization: to solve practical problemson a computer. Accordingly, the book is coordinated with freeefficient C programs that implement the major algorithms studied: +The two-phase simplex method;+Theprimal--dual simplex method;+The path-followinginterior-point method;+The homogeneous self-dual methods. In addition, there are online JAVA applets that illustrate variouspivot rules and variants of the simplex method, both for linearprogramming and for network flows.Also, check the book'swebpage for new online instructional tools and exercises that havebeen added in the new edition.

Professor Robert Freund's review Summary. This book presents a thoroughly modern treatment of linear programming that achieves a healthy balance between theory, implementation, computation, and between the simplex method and interior-point methods. It's most novel feature is that it is written in a delightful and refreshing conversational style, that bespeaks the author's teaching style and relaxed wit. It is a pleasure to read: students will find the book to be friendly and engaging, while professors will find in the book a wealth of teaching material, nicely organized and packaged for classroom use. The book is also meant to be used in conjunction with a public-available website that contains software for various algorithms, additional exercises, and demos of algorithms. Vanderbei's book is thoroughly modern. Vanderbei's book is completely up-to-date. Aside from a nice treatment of the simplex method, it also contains a very up-to-date treatment of interior point methods, including the homogeneous self-dual formulation and algorithm (which might soon become the dominant algorithm in practice and theory). It contains extensive material on issues of implementation of both the simplex algorithm and interior point algorithms. A politician might call it a book for the 21st century. Vanderbei's book has many novel features. This book is quite different from most other textbooks on LP in a number of important ways. For starters, the standard form of a linear program in the book is the symmetric form of the problem (max c^T x | Ax <= b, x >= 0), as opposed to the usual form (min c^T x | Ax=b, x >= 0). This difference allows for an easier treatment of duality, and allows one to see the geometry of linear programming more easily as well. The symmetric form also makes it easier to set up the homogeneous self-dual interior point algorithm. However, this form has the drawback that discussions of bases, basic feasible solutions, and some of the mechanics of the simplex method are all a bit more awkward. (The book uses the language of dictionaries to describe the essential information in a simplex method iteration.) The book has more of a focus on engineering applications than does the more typcial LP textbook (which tend to rely on business problems). For example, there is a nice chapter on optimization of engineering structures such as trusses. The book gives a very broad treatment of interior point methods, including several topics that are not usually found in textbooks such as the homogeneous self-dual formulation and algorithm, quadratic programming via interior point methods, and general convex optimization via interior point methods. These novel features are good in that the author has clearly tried to be innovative and to build an LP text from the ground up, without regard for past texts. Some Nice Features. There are some particularly nice features in the book. The book contains a much-simplified variant of the Klee-Minty polytope that allows for a more straightforward proof that the simplex method can visit exponentially many extreme points. In addition to proving strong duality, the book also presents Tucker's strict complementarity theorem, which has become important in the new view of sensitivity analysis, optimal partitions, and interior point methods. The book also contains a nice treatment of the steepest edge pivot rule, which has recently emerged as an important component in speeding up the performance of the simplex algorithm. In the treatment of interior point methods, the author spends very little time on polynomial time bounds and guarantees (as a theorist, I like to see this material), instead adding value by discussing important computational and implemention issues, including ordering heuristics, strategies for solving the KKT system by Newton's method, etc. The book sometimes has an engineer's feel for the proofs, which is good for students but is a bit frustrating to hard-core math types such as myself. There are many instances where the proof is just a proof via an example. This is consistent with the conversational and informal style of the text, and this informality spills over into the mathematics on occasion. This book has style. As mentioned earlier, the book has a wonderfully appealing conversational style. While the author does not purposely go out of his way to be cute and corny, he succeeds in leaving the reader grinning with his humor. There are some passages that are downright funny, but the style succeeds mostly by default. One section on the issue of modeling the anchoring of truss design problems is called Anchors Away, the subsection on updating factorizations to reduce fill-in is aptly called Shrinking the Bump. And there is the hint of a racy discussion of an application of Konig's Theorem involving boys and girls that the curious reader might enjoy. Overall, I greatly enjoyed reviewing this book, and I highly recommend the book as a textbook for an advanced undergraduate or master's level course in linear programming, particularly for courses in an engineering environment. In addition, the book also is a good reference book for interior point methods as well as for implementation and computational aspects of linear programming. This is an excellent new book. ...

Very Theoretical but good fundamental and advanced techniques
This book is only useful if you already know about linear programming.
Strong Graduate Treatment in Linear Programming The network material was acceptable.I personally thought the text problems were not of the best quality.I would suggest a teacher supplement their own favorites outside of the book. One caution is that the book is somewhat aged.I noticed a text like Nash and Sofer seems to have newer updates on the theory. Overall, a great read for getting into the nitty gritty details of LP.
Excellent but DENSE!!!!
Best Math oriented LP book This book is outstanding for understanding the theory and mathematical mechanics of LP and the first half of the book covers this comprehensively. The excercises in this book are outstanding (and can be hard). For those who need this book but are weak or rusty on the basics (like I was :) ) refer to one of the books above (I liked the Ignizio & Cavalier book a lot). I can't comment on the Network flows part of the book but it will almost surely be excellent if it is anything like the first half. An excellent book for the intended audience. ... Read more |

Great book
Excellent Introduction to LP I had Dr. Cavalier (the other co-author of this book) in a highly theoretical LP grad course and found him to be the best teacher I've ever had. That fluency and clarity in explanation is carried through to the book. Although this text was not used in that course, I found it to be a good reference to some of the concepts. Regretably, I 'discovered' this book only at the end of my course but have refered to it since. The book covers both introductory LP methodology and applications and also goes into some of the basic level theory behind these techniques. It also introduces concepts in Integer Programming well. The explanations of the dual simplex, parametric programming, etc. are all excellent. Make no mistake though, this is a book that sticks almost entirely to LP unlike some of the other introductory OR books by Hillier & Lieberman, Winston, etc. If you are looking for one of these 1000pg all inclusive books, then you might find this book incomplete. For LP, give this book a look. ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description This textbook provides a comprehensive modeling, reformulation and optimization approach for solving production planning and supply chain planning problems, covering topics from a basic introduction to planning systems, mixed integer programming (MIP) models and algorithms through the advanced description of mathematical results in polyhedral combinatorics required to solve these problems. Based on twenty years worth of research in which the authors have played a significant role, the book addresses real life industrial production planning problems (involving complex production structures with multiple production stages) using MIP modeling and reformulation approach. The book provides an introduction to MIP modeling and to planning systems, a unique collection of reformulation results, and an easy to use problem-solving library. This approach is demonstrated through a series of real life case studies, exercises and detailed illustrations.
Review by Jakub Marecek (Computer Journal) The emphasis put on mixed integer rounding and mixing sets, heuristics in-built in general purpose integer programming solvers, as well as on decompositions and heuristics using integer programming should be praised... There is no doubt that this volume offers the present best introduction to integer programming formulations of lotsizing problems, encountered in production planning. (2007) Customer Reviews (2)
