Applied Mathematical Programming

You could obtain this book at the link below for a small fee, or directly from MIT.

Do not look at the date of this book (1977). It still provides the foundation of applied mathematical programming used today. And it is still used today in modeling courses as the main reference because it covers topics from A to Z in a practical and easy-to-understand manner.

Not only does this book show you how to model a wide array of problems, it explains the mathematical algorithms/techniques behind the modeling. And it combines the theory with tonnes of examples!!!

After reading this book, I finally have a true understanding of several topics such as linear programming, duality theory, sensitivity analysis, network/dynamic programming, integer programming, non-linear programming, and my favorite, modeling/solving large-scale problems (via column generation, decomposition, etc..)

The best thing about the book is that advanced topics do not seem advanced any more!!! I wasted my $$$ on too many Operational Research books that over-complicate topics; this book should be on every mathematical programmer's book shelf.

Many thanks to Bradely, Hax, and Magnanti for a job well done!

Given that there is confusion on the point on the part of the human, you are likely correct...

Representing Seattle (cough) Senators Patty Murray & Maria Cantwell are also guilty. At least the internet up here is in an uproar over their votes, for now.

Maria Cantwell's contact form: http://www.cantwell.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email-maria

Sad to see both my senators from California in the YEAs. To see if your senator voted for this abomination, check the roll call here: http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=114&session=1&vote=00291
CISA passed the Senate today in a 74-21 vote. The bill is fundamentally flawed due to its broad immunity clauses, vague definitions, and aggressive spying authorities.

We're getting used to seeing some pretty solid Pi projects among the entrants to the Hackaday Prize each year. Pi0drone, a Linux drone that uses the Raspberry Pi Zero and has a Bill of Materials of less than $200, is one of this year's contenders.

It handles those people too. They are murdered or suicided.

Happy holidays to you, from snoring Haskell.

A much welcomed storm is hitting the Pacific Northwest and pounding the Olympics and Cascades. Our reservoirs will be refilled and skiing will ensue. :)
