This best-selling introduction to operations research now features the Windows versions of LINDO and LINGO. (LINDO, GINO, and LINGO software packages are also available with the book in Macintosh or DOS versions). Forward thinking in approach, this book emphasizes model-formulation and model-building skills. Winston includes material for a three-semester course, organized into self-contained units that provide flexibility in selecting material. Requiring a background in calculus, linear algebra, and statistics, OPERATIONS RESEARCH offers comprehensive coverage for applications-oriented courses in linear or mathematical programming and stochastic and probabilistic models and processes at the undergraduate and graduate level.
