Questions tagged [linear-programming]

Linear programming (also called linear optimization) is a method to achieve the best outcome (such as maximum profit or lowest cost) in a mathematical model whose requirements are represented by linear relationships. Linear programming is a special case of mathematical programming (mathematical optimization).

Has mathematical economics contributed to the mathematics of space exploration?

We see the work of Bellman showing up in both orbital trajectory planning/optimization and, obviously DSGE modeling. Also, in a recent example, the JWST uses ideas surrounding Pareto optimization and ...

Market clearing price and dual variables in auctions

Suppose the allocation of an auction (or a market) is defined by the solution of a linear program. Then it is known that the associated clearing price is given by the dual variable associated to the ...

A profit maximization problem (whole problem has been solved, I just have question about interpretation)

I would like to discuss with you about the following production function. $$y=f(t_m, t_l)=\rho t_m^m(n+t_l)$$ where $0<m<1$ and $n>0$ are fixed parameters. $t_m$ is manager time. $t_l$ ...
