Interior-Point Methods for Linear Optimization

  • Wilhelm Forst
  • Dieter Hoffmann
Part of the Springer Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics and Technology book series (SUMAT)


The development of the last 30 years has been greatly influenced by the aftermath of a “scientific earthquake” which was triggered in 1979 by the findings of the Russian mathematician Khachiyan (1952–2005) and in 1984 by those of the Indian-born mathematician Karmarkar. The New York Times, which profiled Khachiyan’s achievement in a November 1979 article entitled “Soviet Mathematician Is Obscure No More,” called him “the mystery author of a new mathematical theorem that has rocked the world of computer analysis.”
