  3. Operations Research, Mathematical Programming - Dave Rusin; The Mathematical Atlas
    A short article designed to provide an introduction to operations research, which may be figuratively described as the study of optimal resource allocation. Depending on the options and constraints in the setting, this may involve linear programming, or quadratic-, convex-, integer-, or boolean-programming. This category also includes game theory, which is actually not about games at all but rather about optimization; which combination of strategies leads to an optimal outcome. This area also includes mathematical economics. History; applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus. more>>
