Linear Programming with Mathematica: The Simplex Algorithm
Volume 4, Issue 4
Linear programming and the simplex algorithm are fundamental in the
theory and practice of optimization. In this article, the first of two
parts, we exploit the symbolic manipulation capability of Mathematica
to elucidate the simplex algorithm. This discussion provides the foundation
for the second installment, in which we develop functions that enhance
Mathematica's built-in linear programming facility.
