NONCONVEX LINEAR PROGRAMMING by Robert Edward Fricks( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An algorithm for solving the 'nonconvex linear programming problem' Maximize z = cx, Subject to: (A sub i)x = or <(b sub i), 1 = 1 ..., p for at least one i, x = or> 0 is given. The problem is viewed as one of n-dimensional geometry with the union of the p distinct solution sets a general nonconvex (possibly disconnected) polyhedral set. A continuous path in n-space is generated which passes from solution set to solution set as the optimum is sought. The core of the solution procedure is a 'linking linear program' which is a efficient, highly flexible substitute for Phase I of the simplex method. Given an arbitrary linear programming problem in n decision variables and having m constraints, the linking linear program solution approach can conceivably produce an optimum basic feasible solution with little more computational effort than minimum (n, m)+1 'simplex' pivot operations.

A Research bibliography on "two-stage" probabilistic programming, 1964-1969 by R. Edward Fricks( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The bibliography is intended to summarize the available literature on 'Two-Stage Linear Programming Under Uncertainty' for the period January, 1964 through August, 1969. Each of the 47 entries presents a summary of the principal thoughts of the article reviewed, headed by a complete bibliographic reference based upon the most up-to-date information available. Alternate sources are quoted as a part of each entry. All entries are cross indexed by author and title relative to the primary chronological order sequence

The paper suggests that Mathematical Systems Theory is appropriate as a tool for the development of analytical models of organizational situations. A simple decision making system, the executive committee of Bonini's simulation model of the firm, is described using the Mathematical Systems Theory approach and its implications for further research suggested
