Many practical problems such as

can be modelled as finding the maximum of a linear objective function over a set of solutions constrained by linear inequalities. Such mathematical models are known as Linear Programming problems. There good algorithms to solve them, both in theory and practice.

In this course we will try to get a taste of both the mathematical foundations of Linear Programming, and the many ways in which it can be useful.

The course will be a mixture of theory and getting your hands dirty doing some optimization. Knowledge of basic linear algebra would be an asset.
