- "The simplex method of solution of a linear program first transforms the original system to an equivalent system of m equations in canonical form by an elimination of m of the n unknowns. If the right choice of m variables is made, then by equating the remaining variables to zero, an optimal solution is obtained to the original problem. If not, the method produces an improved set of m variables and a corresponding canonical form. The procedure is iterated until an optimum solution is obtained. (Author)."@en
