Textbook Links

Image for textbook The textbook is ``Introduction to Mathematical Programming: Applications and Algorithms, Volume 1" by Wayne Winston and Munirpallam Venkataramanan.
The book is no longer being published, but there are plenty of sources for the text online. See me if you have problems obtaining the text. The ISBN is 0534359647.

Alternate Text: The first 10 chapters of this text are identical to the first 10 chapters of ``Operations Research: Applications and Algorithms'', which is a larger book and may be a better value. We will cover material from Chapters 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7-9 (time permitting). Either text will work fine.
