Description

This book presents a mathematical programming approach to the analysis of production frontiers and efficiency measurement. Using linear programming techniques, the authors construct a variety of production frontiers, and develop a model of efficient producer behavior and a taxonomy of possible types of departure from efficiency in various environments. This book provides a unique study in applied production analysis, and will be of interest to scholars and students of economics and operations research, and analysts in business and government.
