Synopsis:

We study special problems about constrained extremum problems for multivariable functions (the function is linear and the constraint equations are given by linear equations and linear inequalities).

Requirements:

Basic course of Calculus and Linear Algebra (in the extent of the courses 01MA1, 01MAA2-4, 01LA1, 01LAA2 held at the FNSPE CTU in Prague).

Syllabus of lectures:

Forms of the LP problem, duality. Linear equations and inequalities, convex polytope, basic feasible solution, complementary slackness. Algorithms: simplex, dual simplex, primal - dual, revised. Decomposition principle, transportation problem. Discrete LP (algorithm Gomory's). Application of LP in the theory of games - matrix games. Polynomial - time algorithms for LP (Khachian, Karmarkar).

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Optimality test of feasible solution, identify the extreme point of the set of admissible solutions, build a dual problem. 2. Simplex method, dual simplex method, primary - dual simplex method. 3. Gomory algorithm for integer programming. 4. Applications in game theory.

Study Objective:

Knowledge: The mathematical basis for systems of linear equations and inequalities. Skills: To be able to use memorized algorithms to solve specific problems of practice.
