Course Objective

This course is an introduction to Deterministic Operations Research with emphasis on Linear Programming . During the class lectures, emphasis will be placed on A third objective of the course is to expose the student to existing computational environments / packages that implement the theoretical results / algorithms. However, this objective will be primarily pursued through the homework assignments.
