Description

According to the general description in the report, the simplex method for solution of linear programming problems consisted of a computational procedure that optimized a linear "cost function" which was subject to a set of linear restraints. The document contains machine-language code to implement the simplex method on the Burroughs Datatron 205. The package contains a cover letter for the paper from Alex Orden to Dr. A. M. Peiser.
