TL;DR: This classic book looks at a wealth of examples and develops linear programming methods for their solutions and begins by introducing the basic theory of linear inequalities and describes the powerful simplex method used to solve them.

Abstract: In real-world problems related to finance, business, and management, mathematicians and economists frequently encounter optimization problems. In this classic book, George Dantzig looks at a wealth of examples and develops linear programming methods for their solutions. He begins by introducing the basic theory of linear inequalities and describes the powerful simplex method used to solve them. Treatments of the price concept, the transportation problem, and matrix methods are also given, and key mathematical concepts such as the properties of convex sets and linear vector spaces are covered."The author of this book was the main force in establishing a new mathematical discipline, and he has contributed to its further development at every stage and from every angle. This volume ... is a treasure trove for those who work in this field--teachers, students, and users alike. Its encyclopaedic coverage, due in part to collaboration with other experts, makes it an absolute must."--S. Vajda, Zentralblatt fYr Mathematik und ihre Grenzgebiete

^{1}TL;DR: It is proved that given a polytopeP and a strictly interior point a εP, there is a projective transformation of the space that mapsP, a toP′, a′ having the following property: the ratio of the radius of the smallest sphere with center a′, containingP′ to theradius of the largest sphere withCenter a′ contained inP′ isO(n).

Abstract: We present a new polynomial-time algorithm for linear programming. In the worst case, the algorithm requiresO(n
3.5
L) arithmetic operations onO(L) bit numbers, wheren is the number of variables andL is the number of bits in the input. The running-time of this algorithm is better than the ellipsoid algorithm by a factor ofO(n
2.5). We prove that given a polytopeP and a strictly interior point a eP, there is a projective transformation of the space that mapsP, a toP′, a′ having the following property. The ratio of the radius of the smallest sphere with center a′, containingP′ to the radius of the largest sphere with center a′ contained inP′ isO(n). The algorithm consists of repeated application of such projective transformations each followed by optimization over an inscribed sphere to create a sequence of points which converges to the optimal solution in polynomial time.

TL;DR: It is shown that solutions obtained by fuzzy linear programming are always efficient solutions and the consequences of using different ways of combining individual objective functions in order to determine an “optimal” compromise solution are shown.

Abstract: In the recent past numerous models and methods have been suggested to solve the vectormaximum problem. Most of these approaches center their attention on linear programming problems with several objective functions. Apart from these approaches the theory of fuzzy sets has been employed to formulate and solve fuzzy linear programming problems. This paper presents the application of fuzzy linear programming approaches to the linear vectormaximum problem. It shows that solutions obtained by fuzzy linear programming are always efficient solutions. It also shows the consequences of using different ways of combining individual objective functions in order to determine an “optimal” compromise solution.
