- Introduction to Linear Programming and GAMS (Proportionality, Addidivity, Divisibility, Certainty, Graphical Solution, Simplex-Algorithm, Big M Method, Primal-Dual Relationships, Complementary Slackness, Degeneracy, Reduced Costs and Shadow Prices, Interpretation of results, post-optimality analysis, etc.

- Applied Mathematical Programming: transportation and assignment problems; multi-objective programming, mixed integer programming, sequential programming, dynamic programming, etc.
