MATH 480 - Introduction to Optimization

Units: 3
Modern study of linear programming with an emphasis on model formulation, solution, and interpretation of software output. Applications in work-scheduling, diet, capital budgeting, blending, production process, transportation, assignment, transshipment, and flow problems. Programming methods include the simplex method and its specialized variations, Big M Method, goal programming, and integer programming. Theoretical aspects include optimality conditions, sensitivity analysis, and duality. Requires using industry-standard software to strengthen the ideas and concepts.
