This book is designed to serve as an introductory OR textbook for students interested in problem solving, as a textbook for a short course in computer-oriented methods, and as a handbook of optimization methods and computer programs for the practitioner. It is meant as a survey of the important methods of operations research integrating the computer and the methods. It can equally serve the practitioner, the student who plans to study operations research in depth, or the student who only desires an appreciation of the general area of operations research.
