Multipliers and the Simplex Method

Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 149)


The tableau-based simplex method in Chapter 4 masks a relationship between the data in the initial tableau and in the tableaus that result from sequences of pivots. That relationship is now brought into view. Each tableau encountered by the simplex method will be shown to have at least one set of “multipliers,” one per constraint.
