MATH 354 - Operations Research

(3 cr) An introduction to main topics of operations research: linear programming, network optimization, dynamic programming, and queueing theory. The simplex algorithm will be studied in detail, including duality theory and sensitivity analysis. In network optimization the OSPF algorithm, PERT, and CPM will be considered. Examples of applications from industry, notably some queueing algorithms. Additional topics may be chosen from Markov chains, integer programming, nonlinear programming, game theory and decision analysis, and simulation. Prerequisites: MATH 155  and MATH 207  or MATH 254 .
