A schematic, numerical representation which displays the transformed data set associated with a basic solution to a linear-programming problem. For the problem: Minimize cx,v subject to Axv = b, xv ≥ 0, if we let the m × m matrix Bv be a feasible basis and the m × 1 row vector c 0 be the ordered cost coefficients for the variables in the basis, then the simplex tableau displays the following information in an ( m + 1) × ( n + 1) rectangular array
