Abstract : A linear programming problem is that of maximizing or minimizing a linear function of several variables subject to a set of linear constraints which may be algebraic equations or inequalities. The simplex method is a general solution procedure which successively examines vertices of the constraint set until a solution is found. The LPCODE computer program written for the CDC 6600 solves the general linear programming problem by the simplex method. (Author)
