运筹学建模与算法

Operations Research (O.R.) is the branch of engineering science that approaches large-scale "operations" problems in design and planning by forming abstract mathematical models of relevant problem phenomena and analyzing the models to evaluate decision alternatives. This course is one of the introductory courses in O.R. It focuses on the optimization (also called deterministic or mathematical programming) part of operations research--models in which decisions are the variables and we solve or search for a good choice. We discuss how to formulate optimization models, how to solve and analyze them, and how to recognize tractable cases. Emphasis is on the linear programming and integer linear programming forms, which are the most used, but other cases are also introduced.
