In 2000 I completed a book entitled Interactive Operations Research with Maple: Methods and Models (ISBN 0-8176-4165-3 / US $59.95) that is published by Birkhauser, Boston (July 2000). This book demonstrates the use of the computer algebra system Maple in solving challenging problems in operations research.

The book has 10 chapters. These are listed below and a sample chapter (Dynamic Programming) can be downloaded as an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file.

A Solutions Manual will be provided to instructors who adopt the book for their course.


After the book was sent to the printer, I discovered a few minor typos (mostly in the exercises). You can view them in the following Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files.
