Course description: Problems on how to use limited resource in an optimal way are ubiquitous. Operation research provides tools for modeling and analysis of such problems. This course gives a survey on operation research field. Namely, it introduces the simplex method of linear programming, decision analysis, queueing theory and inventory theory.
