Unformatted text preview: CO350 Linear Programming Chapter 8: Degeneracy and Finite Termination 22th June 2005 Chapter 8: Finite Termination 1 Recap On Monday, we established In the absence of degeneracy, the simplex method will terminate after a nite number of iterations. The following observations 1. Iteration degenerate = ) old tableau degenerate. The converse is not true. 2. Iteration degenerate = ) new tableau degenerate. The converse is not true. 3. More than one choice of leaving variable = ) new basis degenerate. The converse is not true. 4. Iteration is degenerate () basic solution remains the same.

In general: degeneracy in d-dimension is represented by having more than d hyperplanes intersecting at an extreme point....
