 dual
 compute the dual of a linear program Calling Sequence dual(f, C, y) Parameters

 f - linear expression C - set of linear inequalities y - name Description

 • The procedure dual(f, C, y) computes the dual of a linear program which is in standard inequality form.
 • The expression f is the linear objective function to be maximized, subject to the linear inequalities C. These inequalities are in the special form produced by convert/stdle. The name y is used to construct the names y1, y2, ... for the dual variables.
 • The resulting dual is returned as an expression sequence:  objective, constraints.
 • The command with(simplex,dual) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command. Examples
