About The Book
Details The Third Edition features various additions as well as improvements that have been developed over the last decade, and the most significant addition to the text involves technology. LT Assistant, a computer application for learning the simplex method, has been developed by co-author Gerard Keough and was designed to be used with this book. This user-friendly program performs the arithmetic of the pivot operation, which is the computational heavy step in each iteration of the simplex algorithm. This software emulates the presentation and use of the algorithm as it appears throughout the text. The spreadsheet tool, Solver, has also been integrated into the book and can solve linear, non-linear and integer programming problems.
