Papadimitriou and K. Steiglitz, Combinatorial Optimization. Great pains have been taken to make the source code for these programs readable see Appendix A. In particular, the names of the variables in the programs are consistent with the notation of this book. There are two ways to run these programs. The advantage of this input format is that there is an archive of problems stored in this format, called the NETLIB suite, that one can download and use immediately a link to the NETLIB suite can be found at the web site mentioned below.
But, this format is somewhat archaic and, in particular, it is not easy to create these files by hand.
Therefore, the programs can also be run from within a problem modeling system called AMPL. AMPL allows one to describe mathematical programming problems using an easy to read, yet concise, algebraic notation.
It includes a discussion of many practical linear programming problems. It also has lots of exercises to hone the modeling skills of the student. Several interesting computer projects can be suggested.
PREFACE xv The software implementing the various algorithms was developed using consistent data structures and so making fair comparisons should be straightforward. A randomized variant of this method is shown to be immune to the travails of degeneracy. The notation and analysis is developed to be consistent across the methods. As a result, the self-dual simplex method emerges as the variant of the simplex method with most connections to interior-point methods.
By highlighting symmetry throughout, it is hoped that the reader will more fully understand and appreciate duality theory.
Linear programming: Foundations and extensions
This analysis is supported by an empirical study. Exercises on the Web. There is always a need for fresh exercises. Hence, I have created and plan to maintain a growing archive of exercises specifically created for use in conjunction with this book. Advice on solving the exercises.
Linear Programming and Extensions
Some problems are routine while others are fairly challenging. Answers to some of the problems are given at the back of the book.
This book evolved from lecture notes developed for my introductory graduate course in linear programming as well as my upper-level undergraduate course. A reasonable undergraduate syllabus would cover essentially all of Part 1 Simplex Method and Duality , the first two chapters of Part 2 Network Flows and Applications , and the first chapter of Part 4 Integer Programming.
At the graduate level, the syllabus should depend on the preparation of the students. For a wellprepared class, one could cover the material in Parts 1 and 2 fairly quickly and then spend more time on Parts 3 Interior-Point Methods and 4 Extensions. In general, Parts 2 and 3 are completely independent of each other. Both depend, however, on the material in Part 1.
The first Chapter in Part 4 Integer Programming depends only on material from Part 1, whereas the remaining chapters build on Part 3 material.
Frequently bought together
My interest in linear programming was sparked by Robert Garfinkel when we shared an office at Bell Labs. I would like to thank him for his constant encouragement, advice, and support. This book benefited greatly from the thoughtful comments and suggestions of David Bernstein and Michael Todd.
I would like to thank Gary Folven at Kluwer and Fred Hillier, the series editor, for encouraging me to undertake this project. I hope this book reflects positively on his advice. Finally, I would like to acknowledge the support of the National Science Foundation and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research for supporting me while writing this book. In a time of declining resources, I am especially grateful for their support.
Robert J. Vanderbei September, Preface to 2nd Edition For the 2nd edition, many new exercises have been added. Also I have worked hard to develop online tools to aid in learning the simplex method and duality theory.
Foundations and Extensions
Besides the learning tools, I have created several online exercises. Pointers to these online exercises are included in the exercises sections at appropriate points. Hopefully, the new version is an improvement on the original. The second edition carries this further with a discussion of the relationship between the basic and nonbasic matrices B and N as they appear in the primal and in the dual.
For the second edition, I have changed the notation for the single array to z1 , z2 ,. Many readers have sent corrections and suggestions for improvement.
Many of the corrections were incorporated into earlier reprintings. Only those that affected pagination were accrued to this new edition.
Even though I cannot now remember everyone who wrote, I am grateful to them all.Here are a few suggestions regarding the simplex codes: One could consider turning this around and doing a primal—dual two-phase algorithm. Of course, we must effect these changes without altering the problem. To see that this product is positive, note that both its factors are positive: Since this system of linear combinations is obtained from the original system by pivot operations and, since pivot operations are reversible, it follows that the rank of the two systems must be the same.
