|simplex method||computing dictionary|
The simplex method is an iterative procedure, solving a system of linear equations in each of its steps, and stopping when either the optimum is reached, or the solution proves infeasible. The basic method remained pretty much the same over the years, though there were many refinements targeted at improving performance (eg. using sparse matrix techniques), numerical accuracy and stability, as well as solving special classes of problems, such as mixed-integer programming.
