About this Item: New York: John Wiley & Sons/ London: Chapman & Hall, 1951., 1951. First printing of the First Edition. xiv, 404 pp; figs. Original cloth. Lower corner of rear cover worn. Top of spine slightly worn. Signature of former owner (R. Pat Crouch) on pastedown. Else Very Good, without dust jacket. Contributors include Koopmans, Arrow, Dorfman, David Gale, H. W. Kuhn, Morgenstern, Herbert A. Simon, et al. Cowles Commission for Research in Economics, Monograph No. 13. "In a path-breaking essay, 'Analysis of Production as an Efficient Combination of 'Activities', published in a book which he edited with others, Activity Analysis of Production and Allocation, Koopmans explored the economic implications of activity analysis, illustrating its use in the solution of many traditional problems in transportation economics" (Mark Blaug, Great Economists Since Keynes, p. 120). Tjalling C. Koopmans: Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, 1975 (shared with Leonid Vitaliyevich Kantorovich), "for their contributions to the theory of optimum allocation of resources." "Kantorovich's work of 1939 did not become known in the West until the late fifties or early sixties. Meanwhile the transportation model was redeveloped in the West without knowledge of the work on this topic by Kantorovich (1942, reprinted 1958) and Kantorovich and Gavurin (1940, 1949). The Western contributions were made by Hitchcock (1941), Koopmans (memo dated 1942, published 1970; articles of 1949 and 1951 (with Reiter), Dantzig (Ch. XXIII in Koopmans, ed., 1951). The general linear model was rediscovered and developed by George B. Dantzig and others associated with him, under the initial stimulus of the scheduling problems of the United States Air Force. The term 'linear programming' came into use for the mathematical analysis and computational procedures associated with this model. A compact early publication of this work can be found in a volume entitled 'Activity Analysis of Production and Allocation', edited by Koopmans (1951)" (Koopmans in his Nobel Lecture). "Georgescu-Roegen made his way back to the United States, finally settling at Vanderbilt University — finding the time, in the meanwhile, to contribute three seminal chapters to the celebrated Koopmans-edited 1951 Cowles monograph on linear programming and general equilibrium theory. There, we find several contributions — including the independent discovery of the Hawkins-Simon conditions, an alternative existence proof for von Neumann’s system, the general laws of substitutability for Leontief systems and more. Contributions by Georgescu-Roegen: "Some Properties of a Generalized Leontief Model"; "The Aggregate Linear Production Function and Its Applications to von Neumann’s Economic Model"; "Relaxation Phenomena in Linear Dynamic Models".

About this Item: John Wiley & Sons; Chapman & Hall, 1951., New York: & London:, 1951. 8vo. xiv, 404 pp. Index. Original blue cloth, printed dust-jacket. Near fine. RARE. The Father of Linear Programming and the Inventor of the "Simplex Method" "Dantzig's paper, originally written in 1947 but not published until 1951, was a fundamental application of computers to problems of management and economics. Dantzig was one of three founders (together with John von Neumann and Leonid Kantorovich) of linear programming, a mathematical method used for the optimum allocation of scarce resources among competing activities. In 1947 Dantzig discovered that many such allocation problems could be formulated as linear computer problems. He also devised an algorithm, known as the simplex method, which allowed these programs to be performed on a large scale and applied to real-world problems. An algorithm of tremendous power, the simplex method remains a major part of most operations research applications." [Hook, Norman, & Williams]. "[In] Washington, . he became a mathematical advisor at the Defense Department, charged with mechanizing the planning process. Based partly on his earlier work with aircraft supply flow, he worked out the simplex algorithm." [Washington Post]. Holly, Joe, "Vanguard Mathematician George Dantzig Dies," Washington Post, May 19, 2005; Hook, Norman, & Williams, Origins of Cyberspace, 2002, p. 49. Seller Inventory # S10244
