This book is a primer to a computer-assited analysis system for mathematical programming models and solution called ANALYZE. ANALYZE is designed to provide computer assistance for analyzing linear programs and their solutions. Although this primer is self-contained, knowledge of linear programming is assumed. The exercises throughout the book show how to use ANALYZE to retrieve information, but it does not explicitly teach what information to obtain. The book is intended for people who already use linear programming. In the latter case, ANALYZE serves to support an LP laboratory, corequisite with lectures, and the exercises need classroom discussion to guide the students. The book is accompanied by a DOS version of ANALYZE on 3.5 inch diskettes and A Laboratory Manual for Teaching Linear Programming is available upon request.
' ... The style is clear, lively, and holds the reader's attention. ... the book presents interesting material regarding the formulation of linear programming problems and their solutions. Consequently, I highly recommend this book. It will be a valuable source for academics and practitionerrs in the domain of mathematical programming. ' Journal of Global Optimization, 7, 1995
