A First Course in Combinatorial Optimization
- Adobe eBook Reader
Jon Lee focuses on key mathematical ideas leading to useful models and algorithms, rather than on data structures and implementation details, in this introductory graduate-level text for students of operations research, mathematics, and computer science. The viewpoint is polyhedral, and Lee also uses matroids as a unifying idea. Topics include linear and integer programming, polytopes, matroids and matroid optimization, shortest paths, and network flows. Problems and exercises are included throughout as well as references for further study.
