**Linear Optimisation and Numerical Analysis**

by Ian Craw

**Publisher**: University of Aberdeen 2002**Number of pages**: 151

**Description**:

The overall aim of the course is: to describe the simplex algorithm and show how it can be used to solve real problems; to show how previous results in linear algebra give a framework for understanding the simplex algorithm; and to place the simplex algorithm in a more general context by describing other calculus-based and computer based optimization algorithms.
