  journal={arXiv: Combinatorics},
The worst-case expected length f(n) of the path taken by the simplex algorithm with the Random Edge pivot rule on a 3-dimensional linear program with n constraints is shown to be bounded by 1.3445 n <= f(n) <= 1.4943 n for large enough n.

LP-related Properties of Polytopes with Few Facets
Linear Programming is the problem of maximizing a linear function in d variables subject to n linear constraints. Its relevance arises from the huge number of optimization problems that can beExpand


One line and n points.
We analyze a randomized pivoting process involving one line and n points in the plane. The process models the behavior of the RANDOM-EDGE simplex algorithm on simple polytopes with n facets inExpand
Randomized Simplex Algorithms on Klee-Minty Cubes
This work disproves two bounds (for the expected running time of the random-edge simplex algorithm on Klee-Minty cubes) conjectured in the literature and establishes quadratic upper bounds for the expected length of a path for asimplex algorithm with random pivots on the classes of linear programs under investigation.

Convex and Linear Orientations of Polytopal Graphs
For each fixed d -polytope and any acyclic orientation of its graph, it is proved there exist both convex and concave functions that induce the given orientation. Expand
