George dantzig, who has died aged 90, was a mathematician who created the algorithm responsible for linear programming, now a vital tool in industry and computing in 1980, it was estimated to be. George dantzig 'invented' the simplex method while looking for methods for solving optimization problems he used a primitive computer in 1947 to achieve his success in developing the simplex method dantzig is currently a professor of operations research and computer science at stanford. The simplex method presents an organized strategy for evaluating a feasible region's vertices this helps to figure out the optimal value of the objective function george dantzig developed the simplex method in 1946. In fact, george dantzig recognized this issue very early when the (known) zeros in the coefficient matrix had a particular pattern (corresponding to the decomposition of production into small clusters which give rise to firms), then dantzig and wolfe showed how the simplex method could take advantage of this structure.
