Text: Operations Research: Volume One, Introduction to Mathematical Programming, by Wayne L. Winston, and Munirpallam Venkataramanan, fourth edition.
Optional texts: There are many books on the subject, here is a very partial list: Applied Mathematical Programming, by Bradley, Hax, and Magnanti, Introduction to Operations Research, by Hillier and Lieberman, Linear Programming, by Chv´
atal, and Linear Programming and Related Problems, by Nering and Tucker. Computing: LP’s can be solved by a many programs, you can choose to use whichever you’d like. The two options discussed in the textbook are Excel and Lindo.
Homeworks: There will be approximately 10 homework sets, equally weighted, and I will drop the lowest two scores before computing your average. Homework cover sheet: Each homework must have a cover sheet (available on blackboard) which should be filled out and stapled to the homework. Homeworks turned in without a cover sheet will not be graded.
No late homework will be accepted. (Since I drop the 2 lowest scores, missing a homework due to illness should not be a problem.) Homeworks will be posted on blackboard. You may discuss homework problems with other students taking the course, with the TA, and with the instructor. But the work that you turn in should always be your own write-up, and you should show that you personally understand everything that you write. Please make certain that...
