Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
Several homeworks to be announced every week, and handed in in the beginning of the following class. These account for the remaining 20% of the grade.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
This course requires a somewhat higher level of abstraction, when compared to a Bachelor course. Students are expected to spend around 1-2 hours per week in out-of-class studies (reviewing the content, and preparing the homeworks).
For a quick review of linear programming, including the simplex method, students are referred to:
Hillier, Lieberman. Introduction to Operations Research. Chapters 1-5.
(Optional!) For a deeper and more rigorous understanding of many of the methods we see in this course, students are referred to:
Bertsimas, D., Tsitsiklis, J. Introduction to Linear Optimization.
