MATH330 - Linear Optimization


This course examines various linear optimization concepts and problem solving techniques commonly found in manufacturing, transportation, and military operations. The goal of optimization is to find the best possible solution to a problem given a number of constraints. The emphasis of this course is problem solving. This course includes the construction and analysis of real world problems and the application of various linear optimization techniques to find an optimal solution. An optimization software package will also be presented and used to solve problems. This course covers a wide range of linear optimization techniques. Topics include linear programming; the simplex algorithm and goal programming; sensitivity analysis and duality; problems in transportation and transshipment; network models; and integer programming. (Prerequisite: MATH220)
