IEOR E4007 G. Iyengar Homework #2 1. Simple problems on simplex Consider a linear program with n = 4 variables and m = 2 constraints. Suppose the current basis B = { 1 , 2 } and the constraints are given by x 1 - 3 x 3 +3 x 4 = 6 x 2 - 8 x 3 +4 x 4 = 4 For each of the following set of objective vectors decide whether the current basis is optimal, if not then move to a better basis or declare the problem is unbounded. (a) max c = 1 1 - 3 - 1 0 (b) max c = 0 0 - 3 1 0 (c) min c = 1 1 - 3 8 0 2. Tinyco Cash Flow Management The cash position of the company is described as follows. Initial holding \$200,000 in short-term bonds Demand for cash in months i = 1 , 2 , . . . , 5: - 100, 300, - 500, - 10, 30 (in thou- sands) Cash earns 0.5% per month and short-term bond earns 0.9% per month Tinyco can borrow up to \$100,000 at 1% interest per month Transaction cost of 0.2% is charged for cash bonds. The bond coupon (interest) is paid in cash (no transaction costs) The goal of the company is to maximize cash position at the end of five months while meeting its liabilities. Formulate and solve the LP that solves this problem. 3. Exercise 3.12 & 3.18 from Optimization Methods in Finance You might want to read Section 3.2 and 3.3.2 before attempting to do this problem. (a) Exercise 3.12 (b) Exercise 3.18 1

### What students are saying

• 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.
