This classic book looks at a wealth of examples and develops linear programming methods for their solutions and begins by introducing the basic theory of linear inequalities and describes the powerful simplex method used to solve them.Expand

A procedure based on a linear programming formulation is given for obtaining a near optimal solution to the optimum routing of a fleet of gasoline delivery trucks between a bulk terminal and a large number of service stations supplied by the terminal.Expand

A technique is presented for the decomposition of a linear program that permits the problem to be solved by alternate solutions of linear sub-programs representing its several parts and a… Expand

The RAND Corporation in the early 1950s contained “what may have been the most remarkable group of mathematicians working on optimization ever assembled” [6]: Arrow, Bellman, Dantzig, Flood, Ford,… Expand

This paper reviews some recent successes in the use of linear programming methods for the solution of discrete-variable extremum problems. One example of the use of the multistage approach of dynamic… Expand
