# Mathematical Developments Arising from Linear Programming

*Jeffrey C. Lagarias; Michael J. Todd*

In recent years, there has been intense work in linear and nonlinear
programming, much of it centered on understanding and extending the ideas
underlying N. Karmarkar's interior-point linear programming algorithm, which
was presented in 1984. This interdisciplinary research was the subject of an
AMS Summer Research Conference on Mathematical Developments Arising from Linear
Programming, held at Bowdoin College in the summer of 1988, which brought
together researchers in mathematics, computer science, and operations research.
This volume contains the proceedings from the conference.

Among the topics covered in this book are: completely integrable dynamical
systems arising in optimization problems, Riemannian geometry and
interior-point linear programming methods, concepts of approximate solution of
linear programs, average case analysis of the simplex method, and recent
results in convex polytopes. Some of the papers extend interior-point methods
to quadratic programming, the linear complementarity problem, convex
programming, multi-criteria optimization, and integer programming. Other
papers study the continuous trajectories underlying interior point methods.
This book will be an excellent resource for those interested in the latest
developments arising from Karmarkar's linear programming algorithm and in
path-following methods for solving differential equations.
