Book Description

Originally published in 1983, this was the first text to offer an in-depth treatment of mathematical programming methods explained from first principles. It considers all the major programming techniques and fully explains key terms, illustrates theories with detailed examples and shows how the various skills are applied in practice. It will be invaluable in both the academic world and to policy formulators and planners, who make extensive use of the methods described.
