**Description: **
This course concerns mathematical models in Management Science. The
first term covers Linear Programming. As well as basic theory, the
course gives a flavour of industrial applications of LP. The package
``Microcomputer Models for Management Decision - Making'' is used to solve practical problems. The second term course is
Simulation. The emphasis is on model building for industrial and
commercial applications and the course concentrates primarily on
discrete event simulation. The GPSS language is used to implement
simple queing models. The third term course develops the ideas
of LP into non-linear and integer programming. All three courses are
applied rather than theoretical.
