Optimization Modeling with Spreadsheets.
Optimization modeling with spreadsheets. (CD-ROM included)
Baker, Kenneth R.
In this introduction for undergraduate students in engineering or management, Baker (management, Dartmouth College) explains mathematical programming from the practical side, using readily available software and concentrating on models rather than algorithms. He covers linear programming formulations (allocation, covering, blending and network models and data envelopment analysis), sensitivity analysis in linear programs, integer programming, nonlinear programming, and heuristic solutions with the evolutionary solver, and includes case studies, exercises and appendices on software, graphical methods in linear programming, the simplex method, and stochastic programming. The CD-ROM includes copies of Premium Solver for Education and Solver Sensitivity.
