2009.12.29    I have finished grading the final and have computed the course grades.
                      The average on the final was 73%, which is about 5% more than usual, so you must have worked hard!
                      In case you cannot get your grade from minerva, please email me directly.

                      Unfortunately I will be out of the country until Jan 23, so I cannot show you your exam until Jan 25.
                      Also I will be away from email Dec 30-Jan 2.

                      All the best for a happy new year.

2009.6.11: A useful free program for solving linear programs is:

        path: /usr/bin/lp_solve
This program can be used to solve linear or integer linear programs.

Usage: lp_solve   -S4  <  input_file       (-S4 option gives dual variables)

Some examples input and output files are here.
Reference manual is here. (Follow tag to "lp file format")

The full package is available for download from the lp_solve  home page.

A nice help page with very old windows executable is available at:
(note the option -p should be replaced by -S4 to get a list of dual variables)
