** Linear Programming Software **

LPAssitant is available as a software supplement for the Thie
and Keogh "Introduction to Mathematical Programming and Game Theory"
text.

For further information, go to the
LPAssistant Website,
where there is also a link for
documentation..
LPAssistant is a Java
program,

which might require installation of Java on your computer.

Matlab is availabile with limited online access from the
MyMath website;
after login, use "Goto" to follow the
"Software" link and select Matlab.

Here are some Matlab example commands for working with a
**linear program:**

** Maximize 1.35A + 4.2B + 3.55C,
subject to A/3 + 2B/3 + C ≤ 150, 5A/3 + 4B + C ≤ 340,
with A,B,C ≥ 0.**

Matlab commands for finding the solution:

**
A = [1/3 2/3 1; 5/3 4 1; -eye(3)]; b = [ 150; 340; 0; 0; 0]; **

[x,fv] = linprog( -[1.35; 4.2; 3.55], A, b ); disp([ -fv x' ])

Output is:" 637 8.5265e-14 57 112",
which shows a maximum of 637 at A=0, B=57 and C=112.
