A brief description of ALPO. (English) Zbl 0744.90056
Summary: This paper describes an implementation of the one-phase primal-dual path- following algorithm for solving linear programming problems. The design is intended to be simple, portable and robust. These design goals are achieved without sacrificing state-of-the-art performance. We give a brief description of the algorithm and the implementation focusing on the features which most distinguish this implementation from others available.
