Dynamic Ideas , Belmont, Massachusetts, The Analytics Edge provides a unified, insightful, modern and entertaining treatment of analytics. The book covers the science of using data to build models, improve decisions, and ultimately add value to institutions and individuals. The book is a modern and unified introduction to linear optimization linear programming, network flows and integer programming at the PhD level. It covers, in addition to the classical material, all the recent developments in the field in the last ten years including the development of interior points, large scale optimization models and algorithms and complexity of linear optimization. It emphasizes the underlying geometry, intuition and applications of large scale systems.
