Fast Times in Linear
Programming: Early Success, Revolutions, and Mysteries

 Linear programming (LP), which isn't really about programming, is a simple-to-state mathematical problem of enormous practical importance. The dramatic saga of LP solution methods began immediately after World War II with unexpected practical success that continued for more than 30 years despite theoretical reservations; next came two sweeping revolutions whose effects are still widely misunderstood. This talk will describe mathematical and computational issues from the history of LP, enlivened by controversy and international politics, as well as some fascinating remaining mysteries.

Любопытно, упомянет ли Леонида Витальевича? Обычно забывают.

Я думаю ему нобелевская по экономике подкузьмила - не все знают, что он вообще-то был математиком :)

Строго говоря, он нобелевскую получил именно за раскрой фанеры. Относится ли это к математике или экономике -- вопрос философский.
