OR 3300 Optimization I Summer 2008 HW 3 LP Duality; Transportation Problem Due date: Monday, June 16, by 3:20pm in the drop box on 2nd foor Rhodes.

Consider the primal LP problem, where a is an unspeciFed coe±cient: min 6 x 1 - 3 x 2 - 3 x 1 + x 2 3 4 x 1 + ax 2 4 x 1 0 , x 2 0 (a) State the dual problem. (b) ³or what values o² a is the primal problem ²easible? (c) ³or what values o² a is the dual problem ²easible? (d) ³or what values o² a does the primal problem have a Fnite optimal solution? (HINT: Pictures are very help²ul ²or this problem.) 5. Consider the system o² linear inequalities { yA = c, y 0 } , where A is an m × n matrix and c is an n -vector. (a) Suppose the linear system is ²easible , i.e., there is an m -vector y so that yA = c, y 0 . Show that there can be no
