The Simplex Method: Two Basic Variables Replacement


  • S. R. Paranjape

    (Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay)


The paper presents a method for solving the linear programming problems, which is itself a step towards the generalization of the classical Simlex Method. It replaces two basic variables by two non-basic variables at each iteration. Naturally this will reduce the total number of steps to reach the final solution. The paper also includes the solution of one example to illustrate the applicability of the method.
