The Simplex Method
Developed by George Dantzig in 1947
Proven to be remarkably efficient in
solving huge problems.
Except for small problems, this method is
always executed on a computer.

Duality and Dual Simplex
Method
DUALITY
With every LP maximization problem, there is an associated
minimization problem, and vice versa. LP problems exist in pairs. The
original problem is called the primal, and the complementary problem
is termed the dua

Sensitivity Analysis
Sensitivity Analysis
Sensitivity analysis refers to an analysis made to determine how
sensitive the optimal solution obtained is to changes in the input data.
One of the major purposes of sensitivity analysis is to provide the
