MIE376 Mathematical Programming Lecture Notes Daniel Frances © 2011 1 Lecture 3 Revised Simplex Method – Matrix Notation Before we showed how to solve problems by simple substitution; now we will deal with algorithms which more closely resemble how commercial codes perform the calculations. The notation introduced here is essential to be able to deal with the more advanced LP concepts of decomposition and column generation to be covered later in this course. Only the second box in the earlier flow chart is changed to: Back to the lathe example: Maximize z = x 1 +2*x 2 + 0*x 3 + 0*x 4 subject to x 1 + 3*x 2 + x 3 = 16 x 1 + x 2 +x4 = 7 x 1 , x 2 , x 3 , x 4 0 In Matrix form Max c T x s.t. Ax=b, x≥0 where
