Abstract
A technique for reducing the number of iterations necessary for solving linear programs using the primal-dual algorithm is presented. It appears that the new method will also decrease the number of iterations over any other simplex algorithm. A FORTRAN program incorporating the technique, as well as some comparative computational results are given.
