Linear programming Linear programming Linear problems Standard form and Slack form The simplex algorithm A few facts regarding the simplex algorithm (without proofs) Linear programming Many problems can be naturally described as maximization/minimization of a linear function under linear constrains. For example: Alice and Bob are flying to Paris for a vacation. They want to take with them as many books as possible , however they can’t carry more then 12 pounds of books. Alice will take x 1 books and Bob will take x 2 books. Alice’s books weigh 3 pounds each, and Bob’s books weigh 1 pound each. After hours of discussions, they decided that given the length of their vacation, and how fast they read, they should make sure that: x 2 2 - 3 4 x 1 2 3 x 2 + 10 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
