Summary and Info
This book was used for a graduate course in LP. For that purpose it was very weak. It takes a practical view of LP and relates it to Matlab, just as the title suggests. I found its content more applicable to undergrads than grads.
On the positive side, the book includes a large set of Matlab routines for manipulating LP tableaus. The support routines are great for solving problems quickly.
I would not recommend this for graduate work. I like Bazaraa's treatment of this subject much better. This book might be OK for professional work if you need a practical intro.
