From the Back Cover:

Linear programming finds the least expensive way to meet given needs with available resources. Its results are used in every area of engineering and commerce; including agriculture, oil refining, banking, and air transport. Authors Kolman and Beck present the basic notions of linear programming and illustrate how they are used to solve important common problems. The software on the included disk leads students through the calculations. Students in quantitative fields, or students in business who want a quantitative approach, will find that the Second Edition has been completely revised to give an orderly introduction to the basic ideas in linear programming. Appropriate review material on linear algebra is included. Other topics covered include the Duality Theorem, the transportation problem, the assignment problem, and the maximal flow problem. New figures and exercises are provided and the authors have updated all computer applications. An appendix, new to this edition, provides a brief introduction to the Kamarkar algorithm.

Review:

"The book presents the basic ideas of linear programming and related areas by not using a rigorous approach. The main objective, to provide a textbook that is readable by students in business, engineering, and computer science, seems to have been achieved....A rich set of more than 280 exercises, real-life projects and further reading suggestions successfully stimulates learning."
--MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
"...The book is very clearly written with many illustrative examples and exercises. The proofs of theoretical results are kept to a minimum so that the book is easy to read even for non mathematics students. It is an excellent textbook on linear programming at an introductory level."
--ZENT. FUR MATHEMATIK UNDIHRE GRENZGEBIETE
