Applied Mathematical Programming Using Algebraic Systems
by Bruce A. McCarl, Thomas H. Spreen
Publisher: Texas A&M University 2011
Number of pages: 567
This book is intended to both serve as a reference guide and a text for a course on Applied Mathematical Programming. The material presented will concentrate upon conceptual issues, problem formulation, computerized problem solution, and results interpretation. Solution algorithms will be treated only to the extent necessary to interpret solutions and overview events that may occur during the solution process.
