"Maximization of a linear function of variables subject ti kinear inequalities." Within: Activity Analysis of Production and Allocation; Pro
8vo. xiv, 404 pp. Index. Original blue cloth, printed dustjacket. Near fine. RARE. The Father of Linear Programming and the Inventor of the "Simplex Method" "Dantzig's paper, originally written in 1947 but not published until 1951, was a fundamental application of computers to problems of management and economics. Dantzig was one of three founders (together with John von Neumann and Leonid Kantorovich) of linear programming, a mathematical method used for the optimum allocation of scarce resources among competing activities. In 1947 Dantzig discovered that many such allocation problems could be formulated as linear computer problems. He also devised an algorithm, known as the simplex method, which allowed these programs to be performed on a large scale and applied to realworld problems. An algorithm of tremendous power, the simplex method remains a major part of most operations research applications." [Hook, Norman, & Williams]. "[In] Washington, . . . he became a mathematical advisor at the Defense Department, charged with mechanizing the planning process. Based partly on his earlier work with aircraft supply flow, he worked out the simplex algorithm." [Washington Post]. Holly, Joe, "Vanguard Mathematician George Dantzig Dies," Washington Post, May 19, 2005; Hook, Norman, & Williams, Origins of Cyberspace, 2002, p. 49.

An Algorithm for the Machine Calculation of Complex Fourier Series.
Contained in Mathematics of Computation, Vol. 19, No. 90, pp. 297301. 8vo. pp. 177364. Original printed wrappers bound in. Black cloth, printed paper spine label. Institutional exlib stamp on printed wrapper cover, ownership marks on printed covers. Fine. FIRST EDITION. This important work on the fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithm, which is an efficient algorithm to compute the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) and its inverse. FFTs are of great importance to a wide variety of applications, from digital signal processing and solving partial differential equations to algorithms for quick multiplication of large integers. "By far the most common FFT is the CooleyTukey algorithm. This is a divide and conquer algorithm that recursively breaks down a DFT of any composite size N = N1N2 into many smaller DFTs of sizes N1 and N2, along with O(N) multiplications by complex roots of unity, traditionally called twiddle factors (after Gentleman and Sande, 1966). This method (and the general idea of an FFT) was popularized by a publication of J. W. Cooley and J. W. Tukey in 1965, but it was later discovered that those two authors had independently reinvented an algorithm known to Carl Friedrich Gauss around 1805 (and subsequently rediscovered several times in limited forms). The most wellknown use of the CooleyTukey algorithm is to divide the transform into two pieces of size N / 2 at each step, and is therefore limited to poweroftwo sizes, but any factorization can be used in general (as was known to both Gauss and Cooley/Tukey). These are called the radix2 and mixedradix cases, respectively (and other variants such as the splitradix FFT have their own names as well). Although the basic idea is recursive, most traditional implementations rearrange the algorithm to avoid explicit recursion. Also, because the CooleyTukey algorithm breaks the DFT into smaller DFTs, it can be combined arbitrarily with any other algorithm for the DFT." [Wikip.]. Norman, Origins of Cyberspace 548. First Edition.
