Full Summary: A simplex algorithm for the solution of separated continuous linear programs

Abstract:
I shall present an algorithm for the exact solution of a separated continuous linear program in a finite number of simplex pivot steps, a problem which has been unsolved for ~50 years. I will also discuss application of this to scheduling and control of manufacturing systems, e.g. semiconductor wafer fabrication, via fluid approximation.
