In this eBook, we guide you through the step-by-step process of choosing a mathematical programming solver – so that you can find the best solver for your business requirements.
H. Paul Williams A great overview and introduction to the process of creating mathematical programming representations of business problems.
Dimitris Bertsimas, John N. Tsitsiklis, and John Tsitsiklis Information on the algorithms and mathematics underlying the solution of linear programming problems.
Robert J. Vanderbei Another resource on the algorithms and mathematics underlying the solution of linear programming problems.
Stephen J. Wright A detailed treatment of interior-point methods for linear programming.
Laurence A. Wolsey Information on the algorithms and mathematics underlying the solution of mixed-integer programming problems.
Tony Hürlimann This book is a comprehensive guide to mathematical modeling. It uses about 100 puzzles as “case studies” and represents them as mathematical models.
Robert Bosch A fun and interesting book that uses integer programming models to create art.
Steve Sashihara Provides an executive-friendly explanation of how optimization can boost performance and drive innovation.
Integer linear programming (ILP) is a versatile modeling and optimization technique that is increasingly used in non-traditional ways in biology, with the potential to transform biological computation.
