a primary direction in Combinatorial Optimization is a 2004 textual content for a one-semester introductory graduate-level direction for college kids of operations examine, arithmetic, and computing device technological know-how. it's a self-contained therapy of the topic, requiring just some mathematical adulthood. issues comprise: linear and integer programming, polytopes, matroids and matroid optimization, shortest paths, and community flows. relevant to the exposition is the polyhedral standpoint, that's the foremost precept underlying the winning integer-programming method of combinatorial-optimization difficulties. one other key unifying subject is matroids. the writer doesn't live on information buildings and implementation information, who prefer to target the main mathematical rules that result in precious types and algorithms. difficulties and routines are integrated all through in addition to references for additional study.
