Back to Advanced Pivot Tool
The advanced pivot tool can serve as an aid for several variants of the simplex method. In particular, it can be used for all of the variants of the simplex method described in Linear Programming: Foundations and Extensions (LP:F&E) by Robert Vanderbei. A few pointers are given below.

The Linear Programming FAQ, established by John W. Gregory and maintained for many years by Robert Fourer, was last updated in 2005. Since the LP FAQ is no longer maintained, the content has been incorporated into the relevant sections of the NEOS Optimization Guide. Please follow the links below.
This collection of textbook references for linear programming is an updated version of the list created by Bob Fourer in the Linear Programming FAQ.

The choice of an appropriate textbook for an undergraduate or graduate course depends on the topics that will be emphasized: brief overview of algorithms, deeper study of algorithms, theorems and proofs, complexity theory, efficient linear algebra, modeling techniques, solution analysis, and so on.
