A First Attempt at an LP Algorithm
CS 149 Sta September 27, 2006
Before we start developing an algorithm to solve Linear Optimization Problems, we must rst dene what it is we are trying to solve. We therefore dene the Linear Optimization Problem to be a 2
Interfacing with Standard LP Solvers
CS 149 Sta October 1, 2006
Unless you decide to work for a company like ILOG there is no need to actually write a linear programming solver. Instead, you simply need to pass the linear program to a standard solver whic
Notes on Simplex Algorithm
CS 149 Sta October 18, 2007
Until now, we have represented the problems geometrically, and solved by nding a corner and moving around. Now we learn an algorithm to solve this without drawing a graph, and feasible regions. Once w

Given a set of variables, each associated with a value domain and given constraints over the value domain, and given constraints over the variables, find an ass

Equivalence of LPS and LPK Theorem: Proof:
Let P1 , c1 and P2 , c2 be instances of any optimization problem. (Refer to Lecture 2, Slide 31 for a denition of optimization problems. Note that we are minimizing). Lemma: Assume that x1 P1 x2 P2 with T T T T
