Linear Programming (EMIS 8371)

EMIS 8371: Linear Programming (G)

This is the first doctoral course in the field of optimization that serves as the foundation for all subsequent courses in the broad area of mathematical programming. The course is intended for first-year Ph.D. students and advanced M.S. students who intend to pursue a doctoral degree. The course provides a complete development of theoretical and computational aspects of linear programming (LP) with topics such as — linear programming formulations, simplex algorithm, optimality conditions, duality, practical computation, and applications.

Schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:30 – 4:50 pm at Caruth Hall 0161.
