Solution of the linear inequality-constrained case studies

In this chapter we solve the case studies that can be formulated as or transformed to linear inequality-constrained minimization problems. These case studies are:

•   least-cost production with capacity constraints (Section 18.1),

•   optimal routing in a data communications network (Section 18.2),

•   least absolute value estimation (Section 18.3), and

•   optimal margin pattern classification (Section 18.4).

18.1 Least-cost production with capacity constraints

In this section, we solve the least-cost production with capacity constraints case study from Section 15.1. We recall and analyze the problem in Section 18.1.1, describe algorithms in Section 18.1.2, and sketch sensitivity ...
