My Love Affair With Linear Optimization

   18 September 2003, late morning

I finished my CO 350 assignment this morning. That’s linear optimization for those who aren’t in the know. The last time I took this class I didn’t feel like doing the first assignment, dropped the course, picked up CS 466 (Advanced Algorithms), and had a bitch of a school term. It was worth it though. This class that boring.

I’m in class right now. My poor prof, Romy Shioda, has spent a good part of an hour talking about how to prove a linear program is unbounded. Example after example. I could smash my head into my chair’s armrest. I’ve spent most of the class writing emails. I’m glad I brought my laptop to school today.

And our class ends. I’m so happy.



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
