Editorial Reviews


From the reviews of the first edition:

"... This book is a useful supplement to the textbook [W.Padberg, Linear Optimization and Extensions, 2nd ed., Springer, Berlin 1999]. It serves the purpose well to train MATHEMATICAL optimizers, but has little impact on the education of mathematical OPTIMIZERS, i.e. it concentrates on mathematics, but not on problem solving in reality. It is a valuable contribution for students in mathematics, but may be less suitable for students of economics or business administration."

OR-Spektrum, Issue 14, p.37, 2002 

"Die in diesem Werk präsentierten Übungsaufgaben wurden überarbeitet, ergänzt, und werden im vorliegenden Text samt Lösungen und geraffter Zusammenfassung der notwendigen theoretischen Resultate präsentiert. ... Bemerkenswert ist weiters, daß auch Programmieraufgaben gestellt und gelöst werden. ... Insgesamt ist das Buch sowohl als Quelle für Übungsaufgaben zu Vorlesungen über Lineare Optimierung als auch zum Selbststudieum sehr gut geeignet."

F.Rendl (Klagenfurt), IMN - Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten 190, 2002, S. 76-77

"Do you know M. Padberg’s Linear Optimization and Extensions (second edition, Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 1999)? If you teach a course on linear programming then you should know it. ... Now here is the continuation of it, discussing the solutions of all its exercises and with detailed analysis of the applications mentioned. … For those who cherish the original textbook (students and lecturers) this is an extremely valuable sequel. For those who strive for good exercises and case studies for LP this is an excellent volume." (Péter Hajnal, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol.69, 2003)

Format: Hardcover
This book is certainly a very good reference for theoretical topics of linear programming. It covers the Simplex method and the Ellipsoid algorithms. It also covers the geometry of linear programming (polyhedra and polytopes, etc). It certainly covers more topics than most other linear programming texts. As expected, a book writen for theoretical topics is certainly not easy to read, especially for people with no training in doing rigorous mathematical proofs. Also, not many examples or illustrations are given in this book, and this might be a problem for some readers.
