9780132555937: Operations Research: An Introduction

Operations Research: An Introduction, 9/e is ideal for or junior/senior undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in Operations Research in departments of Industrial Engineering, Business Administration, Statistics, Computer Science, and Mathematics.

 

This text streamlines the coverage of the theory, applications, and computations of operations research. Numerical examples are effectively used to explain complex mathematical concepts. A separate chapter of fully analyzed applications aptly demonstrates the diverse use of OR. The popular commercial and tutorial software AMPL, Excel, Excel Solver, and Tora are used throughout the book to solve practical problems and to test theoretical concepts.

Review:

“Dr. Taha is an excellent author and presents materials in his book very well in terms of readability and clarity.  The topics within every chapter are presented in a cohesive and logical manner.”

-M. Jeya Chandra, PENN STATE UNIVERSITY

 

“The book is very clear and readable.  Figures do a good job of illustrating Dr. Taha’s points.  It is very useful to have the Solver & TORA output shown in the chapter with discussion of how to interpret results.”

-Marc E. Posner, THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
