    operations research and linear programming

    Sponsored Ad:
    Is an Operations Research course the same as a Linear Programming course, at least at the undergraduate level?
    Some schools offer a course in operations research, others in linear programming, and I've seen some people use them interchangeably, so I was wondering.

    Thanks!

    Re: operations research and linear programming

    The field of operation research contains optimization methods and stochastic methods. A generically labeled UG operation research class could solely cover optimization methods, or could solely cover stochastic methods or could cover some combination of the two and I have seen UG classes of all three types being offered. You need to look at the syllabus.
