2 NEXTOR - National Center of Excellence for Aviation Research Resource Allocation Principles of Mathematical Programming Mathematical programming is a general technique to solve resource allocation problems using optimization. Types of problems: Linear programming Integer programming Dynamic programming Decision analysis Network analysis and CPM
3 NEXTOR - National Center of Excellence for Aviation Research Mathematical Programming Operations research was born with the increasing need to solve optimal resource allocation during WWII. Air Battle of Britain North Atlantic supply routing problems Optimal allocation of military convoys in Europe Dantzig (1947) is credited with the first solutions to linear programming problems using the Simplex Method

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
