This course is intended to study the computational methodologies of Linear Programming and its variants and extensions, from the Transportation Problem and the Assignment Model to Network optimisation. Various types of applications from the fields of Environmental Science (for the determination of the efficient use of scarce resources), Economics, Finance, Advertising... will be investigated and the methods by which useful results are obtainable - together with the reasoning behind the use of these methods - will be discussed. Both the mathematical aspects and the use of a software package will be highlighted, each approach reinforcing the other. All classes will be held in the computer lab so as to enhance understanding, favour an interactive approach and develop new insights. Prerequisite: MA 1010 or above
