Online Book: Julia Programming for Operations Research

Chang Kwon
Hi All,

I wrote a book. It is an online book at this moment. The title is “Julia Programming for Operations Research: A Primer on Computing”. This books is literally a primer, and basically a tutorial on the Julia Language, focusing on some common tasks in operations research. 

My main target readers are my own graduate students without good computer programming skills :) I just wanted to toss this book to them and forget about teaching them programming skills. Well, therefore I believe this book would also be useful to other people in similar situations: learning operations research with little or no previous computer programming experiences. 

Learn more about the book and preview it here: http://www.chkwon.net/julia/

For the julia-opt group, I prepared 20 codes for 100% discount. You can redeem the discount code at the following URL:

https://www.softcover.io/buy/7b8eb7d0/juliabook?code=julia-opt

I appreciate any feedback on the book — corrections, suggestions, opinions, anything.

Again, I thank the developers of JuMP and JuliaOpt. Indeed, JuMP is why I use and love Julia.

Thanks,
Chang

I have read part of this book. It is really helpful for the researchers.  The author has a background of transportation modeling. Besides optimization, this book also include graph theory. I am postdoc research staff in an university. This book save me a lot of time.

I have just approached JULIA Language. hope it help my study on operation research a lot, just because I am one of the people who are new in computer programming.
