Advantages of the use of the scientific method in psychology
There are a number of advantages to using scientific methods in psychology. Firstly an important aspect of imperial data is that it is objective, i.e. not affected by expectations of the research. So, without objectivity we have no w...

Unit 1 Lesson 9 : The Big M Method
Learning outcomes • The Big M Method to solve a linear programming problem.
In the previous discussions of the Simplex algorithm I have seen that the method must start with a basic feasible solution. In my examples so far, I have looked at problems that, when...

An Example of Two Phase Simplex Method
Consider the following LP problem.
max z = 2x1 + 3x2 + x3
s.t. x1 + x2 + x3 · 40
2x1 + x2 ¡ x3 ¸ 10
¡x2 + x3 ¸ 10
x1; x2; x3 ¸ 0
It can be transformed into the standard form by introducing 3 slack variables x4, x5 and x6.
max z = 2x1 + 3x2 + x3...

We introduce a new online convex optimization algorithm that adaptively chooses its regularization function based on t...
The Big-M method of handling instances with artificial variables is the “common sense approach”. Essentially, the notion is to make the artificial variables, through their coefficients in the objective function, so costly or unprofitable that any feasible solution to the real probl...
In this chapter, we put the theory developed in the last to practice. We develop the simplex method algorithm for LP problems given in feasible canonical form and standard form. We also discuss two methods, the M -Method and the Two-Phase Method, that deal with the sit...
