Nonlinear Programming by the Simplex Method
H. O. HartleyNonlinear programming is a numerical technique of computing the "optimum levels" of "activities" for an organization or enterpreneur wishing to maximize an "objective function" (say, profit). While with "linear programming" profit is a "linear function" of the activity levels which are linearly constrained, the present methods permit nonlinear functional relationships of a particular type.
