Recently in my material science research, I have encountered problems of very large scale linear optimization. I read the introductory book "Introduction to Linear Optimization (Athena Scientific Series in Optimization and Neural Computation, 6)" and I wish to read further trying to resolve the very large scale linear programming problem I encountered.

What books would you suggest me to read to further develop my knowledge? Thank you:)

  • $\begingroup$ Are you interested in Linear Programs or also Mixed Integer Linear Programs? Can you quantify the usual number of variables and/or constraints? $\endgroup$ Oct 15, 2014 at 13:34

Have a look at Marti, Reinelt: The Linear Ordering Problem. This books gives an up-to-date overview.
