Principles of Operations Research by Wagner

  • Nov 18, 2003
This is a superior volume on the workings of linear programming.
The author provides ample illustrations of how to diagram
a linear programming solution, as well as solutions through the
simplex method. There is an exhaustive set of advanced operations
research methods; namely:
o linear models, algebra and the geometry of these models
o the simplex method, sensitivity training and duality
o network models, network algorithms, dynamic models
o deterministic inventory scheduling
o integer programming, the nonlinear objective function
o advanced nonlinear programming
o probabilistic inventory models
o waiting lines and simulation, computer simulation
o advanced queuing and network algorithms

This text shows how to build and implement an advanced
operations research model. The author emphasizes the design
of models because linear programming software can be used
to solve these problems once structured by the user(s).
This book presumes some knowledge of calculus, linear algebra
and probability/statistical inference. Operations Research
models are useful for many industrial engineering applications.
