Gill c 2011 http://ccom.ucsd.edu/~peg/math171a Monday, January 10th, 2011 Recap: Properties of linear constraints The constraints may be infeasible constraint #1: x 1 + x 2 ≥ 1 , a T 1 = ( 1 1 ) , b 1 = 1 constraint #2: x 1 ≥ , a T 2 = ( 1 ) , b 2 = constraint #3: x 1 ≥  2 , a T 3 = ( 1 ) , b 3 = 2 constraint #4: x 2 ≥ , a T 4 = ( 1 ) , b 4 = constraint #5: x 1 + 2 x 2 ≥ 1 , a T 5 = ( 1 2 ) , b 5 = 1 constraint #6: 2 x 1 4 x 2 ≥  1 , a T 6 = ( 2 4 ) , b 6 = 1 A = 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 2 4 , b = 1 2 1 1 UCSD Center for Computational Mathematics Slide 2/63, Monday, January 10th, 2011 x 1 x 2 a 1 # 1 #2 #3 #4 a 4 #5 a 5 a 2 #6 If constraint #6 is present, there are no feasible points! Definition A set of constraints is feasible (aka consistent ) if there exists at least one feasible point. Otherwise, the constraints are infeasible (aka inconsistent ).

A linear program can have a unique feasible point (necessarily optimal!) UCSD Center for Computational Mathematics Slide 7/63, Monday, January 10th, 2011 An important feature of the feasible region Result Every point on the boundary of FF lies on the intersection of a subset of the constraint hyperplanes . The number of intersecting hyperplanes depends on the type of boundary point.
