- 5-Year Impact Factor:
"The book presents the basic ideas of linear programming and related areas by not using a rigorous approach. The main objective, to provide a textbook that is readable by students in business, engineering, and computer science, seems to have been achieved....A rich set of more than 280 exercises, real-life projects and further reading suggestions successfully stimulates learning." --MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS "...The book is very clearly written with many illustrative examples and exercises. The proofs of theoretical results are kept to a minimum so that the book is easy to read even for non mathematics students. It is an excellent textbook on linear programming at an introductory level." --ZENT. FUR MATHEMATIK UNDIHRE GRENZGEBIETE
