Description

This text provides a concise analysis for professionals in operations research, statistics, management, applied mathematics, and finance. It covers graph theory, linear programming, stochastic processes, and dynamic processing. The second edition adds new material and longer investigations, and incorporates suggestions and self-check questions throughout the text.

A complete electronic version is on the accompanying CD in the form of Mathematica notebooks, letting you devise, edit, and execute commands to increase comprehension and problem-solving ability.
