Simplex algorithm rules

December 29, 2008

(over midnight thoughts)
Simplex algorithm main rule is:

-move to nearby vertex (which one choosed on specific rules), it will be your next by optimum solutions

moving vertex by vertex you’ll reach the very best solution of your function, but … vertex by vertex, you’ll “sacrifice” some variable in favor of another one, that will give you more value … more value … mmmm

This is every day life, ie: personal life, sport, job, family, house, etc;
you “sacrifice” something-here vs something-there to improve your status.

You do this to get a better “status” … unfortunately “best situation” ain’t so easy to achieve, so almost everyone has to “climb the life” and sacrifice something.

Being a little bit more pragmatic, let you choose want you want to sacrifice to climb a step higher.

If you don’t have/want to sacrifice a single thing, then … that’s your optimum!

I’m glad you reached. 😉

Quite unlikely …
