ORIE 3300/5300 ASSIGNMENT 10 Fall 2010 Individual work. Due: 3 pm, Friday November 19. 1. We have spent much time on the idea of a “certificate of optimality,” which can be used to show that a proposed solution to a linear pro- gramming problem is optimal. In this question you will see how to produce a certificate that a linear programming problem is infeasible. Suppose the constraints of a linear programming problem in standard equality form are Ax = b, x 0 , where A is an m × n matrix. (a) Suppose there is a vector y m satisfying A T y 0 , b T y < 0 . Show that the linear programming problem has no feasible solu- tion. (Hint: consider y T Ax = ( A T y ) T x for a feasible x .) Hence such a y can be viewed as a certificate of infeasibility. As with optimality, we want to show that whenever a linear program- ming problem is infeasible, such a certificate of infeasibility exists. (b) Suppose for simplicity that b 0. Show that if the linear pro- gramming problem is infeasible, then the auxiliary problem max ( - e ) T v subject to Ax

    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.
