# OR Methods and Models

## These papers have been cited by many other researchers, and they have been used to solve real-world problems using simplex method, Ford-Fulkerson algorithm, critical path method, Queueing theory and Stochastic models.

## The Simplex Method

One of the most important classic academic papers in OR is “The Simplex Method” by George Dantzig (1947). This paper introduced the simplex method, which is a popular algorithm for solving linear programming problems. The simplex method is a simple and efficient way to solve linear programming problems, and it is still widely used today.

## Linear Programming and The Transportation Problem

“Linear Programming” by George Dantzig (1947): This paper introduced the concept of linear programming, which is a mathematical technique for optimizing an objective function subject to a set of linear constraints.

An important classic academic paper in OR is “The Transportation Problem” by Ford and Fulkerson (1956). This paper introduced the Ford-Fulkerson algorithm, which is a popular algorithm for solving the transportation problem. The transportation problem is a special case of linear programming…
