Operation Research - MATH 312

Lecture Meeting: Monday 11:00 - 13:00
Catalog Description:

Modeling linear programming and deriving methods for solving them using algorithms such as:geometrical method, simplex method, dual simplex method, transportation algorithms. Problems without constraint will be also discussed, where various numerical methods apply.

Course Objectives:

This course provides students with the specialist knowledge necessary for basic concepts in linear programming . It enables them to learn the fundamental aspects of optimization problems, basic concepts about geometrical, simplex, dual simplex methods and numerical methods for unconstraint problems.

Course Outcomes:
