Sample problem 1)  Find and graph the feasible region for the following constraints: x + y 2x + y x 0, y

Applications include: Resource allocation We seek to invest a given amount of money so as to maximize our return. Our possible options, payoffs, and expenses can usually be expressed as a system of linear inequalities, such that we seek to maximize our possible profit given the various constraints. Very large linear programming problems are routinely solved by airlines and other corporations. Approximating the solution of inconsistent equations A set of m linear equations on n variables , is overdetermined if m n Such overdetermined systems are often inconsistent , meaning that no assignment of variables simultaneously solves all the equations. To find the variable assignment that best fits the equations, we can replace each variable

http://www.fact-index.com/l/li/linear_programming.html

Extractions: Main Page See live article Alphabetical index Linear programming is the process of solving a system of linear equalities and linear inequalities over a set of unknown real variables, along with a linear objective function to be maximized. Many practical problems in operations research can be expressed as linear programming problems. For instance, if x1 is the number of acres planted with wheat and x2 is the number planted with corn, and a farmer has a limited number of acres A, and has a limited permissible amount F of fertilizer and P of insecticide which can be used, each of which is required in different amounts per acre (F1, F2, P1, P2) for wheat and corn respectively, and knows the selling price of wheat S1 and the selling price of corn S2, then the optimal number of acres to plant with wheat vs corn can be expressed as a linear program: Subject to the linear constraints: x x x x A (limit on total acrage) F x F x F (limit on fertilizer) P x P x P (limit on insecticide) maximize the objective function: S x S x Due to the geometry of these kinds of linear constraints and the linear objective function, LP problems are "convex", which means that there are no local optima (aside from the global optimum). Furthermore, in LP the solution must be at a vertex of the n-dimensional

http://www.cut-the-knot.org/do_you_know/lin_pr.shtml

Extractions: Recommend this site Linear Programming Linear Programming is a particular case of constrained optimization problems . What sets the linear programming aside is that optimal values are sought for a linear function subject to linear constraints. To have a general formulation let's assume that we are given an mxn matrix A an mx1 ( column ) vector b a 1xn ( row ) vector c The role of unknown is played by a nx1 (column) vector x which is required to satisfy two constraints: A x b , and x the latter means that all the components of x are nonnegative. Vectors that satisfy constraints 1 and 2 are called feasible . We are interested in situations where the set of feasible vectors is not empty. Finally, the cost or objective function f is given by f( x ) = c. x , where c x is the scalar product of two vectors c and x: c x = c x + ... + c n x n . In linear programming, one is requested to maximize (or minimize) the cost function f subject to constraints 1 and 2: (P) Maximize f( x c x subject to A x b and x Assume that we have decided to position defenders of a square castle according to the following plan: p q p q q p q p so that the total number of defenders is 4(p+q) while (2p+q) fighters face the enemy on every side. Let's denote p = x

8. Two Dimensional Linear Programming
Two dimensional linear programming. linear programming is the problem of deciding whether there exists a solution to a system of linear ineqalities.
http://valis.cs.uiuc.edu/~sariel/CG/applets/linear_prog/main.html

Extractions: Home Bookmarks Search Computational Geometry ... Papers Linear programming is the problem of deciding whether there exists a solution to a system of linear ineqalities. Alot of work was gone into this problem, resulting in the classical SIMPLEX algorithm (which is exponential in the worst case), and the Ellipsoid method. The SIMPlEX algorithm is exponential in the worstcase, and the Ellipsoid algorithm is weakly polynomial. Coming up with a strongly-polynomial time algorithm for the linear programming problem is one of the major open problems in computer science. However, if the number of variables in the system of inequalities is small (2, 3, or even a small constant) better methods are known. In this applet we demonstrate Megiddo algorithm (independently discovered by Dyer) for the planar case. Here, each inequlity: corresponds to half of the plane (because, a i x + b i y = c i is a line, and all the points that lie to one side of this line fulfill this inequality). We know that there is a solution if the intersection of the all those regions is not empty (i.e. the feasible region). In fact, usually we also wish to find a solution that minimizes (or maximizes) a linear function (i.e. objective function).

Extractions: POINTERS: Texts Software Web links Selected topics here Operations research may be loosely described as the study of optimal resource allocation. Mathematically, this is the study of optimization. Depending on the options and constraints in the setting, this may involve linear programming, or quadratic-, convex-, integer-, or boolean-programming. Some links to the history of Operations Research can be found at the Military Operations Research Society and on J. E. Beasley 's home page. For numerical optimization techniques (conjugate gradient, simulated annealing, etc.) see 65, Numerical Analysis Discrete optimization problems (traveling salesman, etc.) are principally treated in Combinatorics The word "programming" in this context is essentially unrelated to computer programming; for that topic see Computer Science Operations research and management science (for discrete assignment problems see also 05-XX.)

Graphical Simplex Algorithm (2D). Graphical method provides us valuable insights about the general nature of solutions to linear programming problems.
http://gunsmoke.ecn.purdue.edu:8658/ce597s/project/

Extractions: Graphical method provides us valuable insights about the general nature of solutions to linear programming problems. We build this server as an interface between graphical solution and simplex algorithm. Since graphical mothod can only apply to small problems with two, or at most three decision variables, this server is built to deal with LP problems with two decision variables but any number of constrains. In this tutorial, we adopt the standard formulation for linear programming problem. First, you are required to specify the objective function, and the number of the constrains. Then you continue to define the constrains. After you finish your definition of the LP problem, a graphical solution is provided with the feasible region shaded and optimal optimal point highlighted. A tabular solution with the decision variables and slack variables at all extreme points is also presented. The relationship between the graphical solution and the tabular solution is specified by various colors as well as labeled points. This tutorial is built as a server-side application.

Extractions: pp. 496-506 Abstract. While a finite collection of data does not specify a unique solution to a linear inverse problem, it can allow bounds to be placed on certain nonlinear solution functionals. Using the Dirichlet problem for the unit disc as an example, this note demonstrates the use of linear programming in constructing extremal solutions associated with a variety of such bounds.

Extractions: pp. 313-335 Abstract. In this paper we use infinite linear programming to study Markov control processes in Borel spaces and the average cost criterion in the "unichain" and "multichain" cases. Under appropriate assumptions we show that in both cases the associated linear programs are solvable and that there is no duality gap. Moreover, conditions are given for minimizing (respectively, maximizing) sequences for the primal (respectively, dual) programs to converge to optimal solutions. Key words.
