to for the dually feasible vector 7TT = (1/6,—1/2,1/3) to the linear
program min 331 +3232 +3x3 +364 2 z

T _ This means that 7r was not optimal, and we need a new vector W = 7r + 67H, where (WT) —
(1,1,1) — (5/2,3/2,0) = (—3/2,——1/2,1). To calculate the best 6, we need to check only the third
inequality in the Dual, since J = {1, 2,4}. This reduces to the inequality (—3)(1/6 + 9(—3/2)) + 6(—1/2 + 9(—1/2)) g 3, HOOOUJ‘I which gives 19 3 13/3. So, we take 0 = 13/3 and obtain the new NT 2 (~19/3, ~8/3, 14/3). Plugging
this 7T into the Dual, we get the new J = {1,3,4}. 1:: 3 2. Determine the value of the following game, together With ROW’S
optimal strategy for the game for the following payoff matrix. (Hint:
you may want to delete dominated rows/ columns.) 0 5 1 5

0 that With the matrix 1 . Solvmg it (for ) we get that the value is 5/8. The Optimal strategy of the ﬁrst player is [3/8, 0, 5/8]. The optimal strategy of the second player is [7/8, 1/8, 0, 0]. 4 3. Suppose that $0 is a feasible point of the linear program P min 0T3: subject to and that y satisﬁes
CTy<0, Ay=0, yZO.
Prove that P is unbounded.
Solution: See solutions to HWG. El 5 4. Solve the following shortest path problem via the graphical pro—
cedure derived from the primal—dual method. Start with the feasible, but not optimal solution 71' = (0, 0, . . . ,0) to the dual problem (D) of
shortest path problem 711 Brief solution: This is similar to page 112 (Figure 5.4) of the textbook.
(Warning, as observed in class, the ﬁrst step had a typo as @1 = 1.)
A shortest s—t path is s —> 114 —+ 112 —> t of length 8. D 1,1mmf«Mmmewm‘mxm ma mm, 6 (This page is intentionally left blank) 7 5. Explain the max flow solution to the Sports Writer problem dis
cussed in class. Speciﬁcally, one wants to know if it is possible for
Tampa to obtain ﬁrst place in the division (i.e., win 83 games and have
no one else win 84 games or more) given the standings below.
