Praise for the Second Edition:

"This is quite a well-done book: very tightly organized,better-than-average exposition, and numerous examples,illustrations, and applications."—Mathematical Reviews of the American MathematicalSociety

An Introduction to Linear Programming and Game Theory, ThirdEdition presents a rigorous, yet accessible, introduction tothe theoretical concepts and computational techniques of linearprogramming and game theory. Now with more extensive modelingexercises and detailed integer programming examples, this bookuniquely illustrates how mathematics can be used in real-worldapplications in the social, life, and managerial sciences,providing readers with the opportunity to develop and apply theiranalytical abilities when solving realistic problems.

This Third Edition addresses various new topics and improvementsin the field of mathematical programming, and it also presents twosoftware programs, LP Assistant and the Solver add-in for MicrosoftOffice Excel, for solving linear programming problems. LPAssistant, developed by coauthor Gerard Keough, allows readers toperform the basic steps of the algorithms provided in the book andis freely available via the book's related Web site. The use of thesensitivity analysis report and integer programming algorithm fromthe Solver add-in for Microsoft Office Excel is introduced soreaders can solve the book's linear and integer programmingproblems. A detailed appendix contains instructions for the use ofboth applications.

Additional features of the Third Edition include:

A discussion of sensitivity analysis for the two-variableproblem, along with new examples demonstrating integer programming,non-linear programming, and make vs. buy models

Revised proofs and a discussion on the relevance and solution ofthe dual problem

A section on developing an example in Data EnvelopmentAnalysis

An outline of the proof of John Nash's theorem on the existenceof equilibrium strategy pairs for non-cooperative, non-zero-sumgames

Providing a complete mathematical development of all presentedconcepts and examples, Introduction to Linear Programming andGame Theory, Third Edition is an ideal text for linearprogramming and mathematical modeling courses at theupper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It also serves as avaluable reference for professionals who use game theory inbusiness, economics, and management science.

Comments to eBook An Introduction to Linear Programming and Game Theory

Very good book. Very thorough in its explanations. Good price.

After spending much of the summer reading and trying to learn linear programming on my own using this book, I feel that I'm qualified write this review.

This book suffers from persistent disorganization which I suspect is due to pressure put on the author to reduce the number of pages in the book as much as possible. Consequently, formatting shortcuts are taken wherever possible. Some of these shortcuts do not seriously inhibit learning this material.

But when one wishes to complete a problem which requires that you refer to a problem 2 chapters before; which requires that you refer to a problem one chapter before, and so on. And when a specific example refers to a problem two sections before, which refers to a table two sections before that, which...well you get the point. The reader is then required to focus more on what page what table is then on the material.

The other major difficulties with this book arise from the authors lack of good punctuation and his lack of emphasis (through formatting on the page itself) of important points, often contained deep within examples. Most of the topics of the first 5 chapters are taught in the form of an example. And so a single sentence within a half-page paragraph of information that is critical to understanding the problem at hand ought to be emphasized some how. Some people prefer bold such things, others prefer to center. Dr Thie prefers to have you reread a huge paragraph of information on a page you can't remember to find out if such and such number was required to be positive or negative.

That's my take. You get the picture. Don't buy this book unless your prof makes you.

One of the worst books ever written. Overly complicated, with no regard for simple and easy explanations on how to solve problems. No clear guideline on how to solve problems at all - just goes from one step to another without explaining the process to get there. Do not waste your money with this book at all.

The first part of this book is a good introduction to linear programming and the simplex method. Easy reading, tries to give insight, and with lots of examples. My personal favorite when it comes to refreshing my intuition on duality and how simplex works.
Regarding the game theory material, it seems to be a little crowded. Don't expect any in-depth coverage there, but as a brief overview it might be appropriate.
