Summary: "This book is truly readable, truly practical. Throughout, the focus is on model-formulation and model-building...and their applications to real-world problems. The book's strong computer orientations is enhanced in this new edition. Every topic discusses its computer-based solving method and every chapter presents the software tools you can use to solve realistic problems. The book also offers complete explaination of all the important algorithms in OR." - Back cover.
