“A Linear Programming problem comes to identifing an extreme (i.e., minimum or maximum) point of a function f(x 1 ,x 2 ,..,x n ), which furthermore satisfies a set of constraints, e.g., g(x 1 ,x 2 ,..,x n )>0. Linear programming is the specialization of mathematical programming to the case where both, function f (objective function) and the problem constraints are linear...” [21]. From an applications perspective, linear programming is an optimization tool. An important factor for the applicability of the linear programming methodology, is the computational tractability of the resulting analytical models. Under the advent of modern computing technology, this tractability requirement translates to the existence of effective and efficient algorithmic procedures able to provide a systematic and fast solution to these models [21]. There are three inputs in LP: variables, an objective function and constraints, where both the objective function and constraints must be linear. The output of LP is the maximum (or minimum) value of the objective function as well as the values of variables at this maximum or minimum point [21].

### 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.

• 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.
