Focusing on deterministic models, this book is designed for the first half of an operations research course. A subset of Winston's best-selling OPERATIONS RESEARCH, INTRODUCTION TO MATHEMATICAL PROGRAMMING offers self-contained chapters that make it flexible enough for one- or two-semester courses ranging from advanced beginning to intermediate in level. Appropriate for undergraduate majors, MBAs, and graduate students, it emphasizes model-formulations and model-building skills as well as interpretation of computer software output. LINDO, GINO, and LINGO software packages are available with the book in Windows, Macintosh or DOS versions. Linear algebra prerequisite.
