This course will introduce students to the basic principles of Operations Research with special emphasis on the paradigms associated with linear programming and simplex method. These include generic modelling; mathematical modelling; the "max", "min", and "mixed case" simplex algorithms; sensitivity analysis; duality; dual simplex algorithm; the revised simplex method; and "assignment", "transportation" and "transhipment" models. These subjects will be studied from both theoretical and practical perspectives.
