Significantly revised, this book provides balanced coverage of the theory, applications, and computations of operations research. The applications and computations in operations research are emphasized. Explains complex mathematical concepts effectively using carefully designed numerical examples, virtually eliminating the need for formal mathematical proofs. Introduces practical applications of software, enabling readers to test concepts. Presents complete integration throughout of the powerful programming language AMPL, using numerous examples ranging from linear and network to integer and nonlinear programming. Is accompanied by a CD-ROM that includes additional book chapters; TORA, the easy-to-use, menu-driven optimization system; over 20 general and ready-to-use Excel spreadsheet templates; several Excel Solver templates; and example applications of the commercial packages AMPL(R) and LINGO(R).
