What is sensitivity analysis? Why do we perform sensitivity analysis? How far do we like to perform sensitivity analysis? In an LP sensitivity analysis, what type of conditions or information are considered? In an LP sensitivity analysis, what type of conclusions are considered? IE 416, Chap 5:1, July 98

Shadow Price: SP page 199 Shadow price for the i th constraint of an LP is the amount by which the optimal z-value is improved if the rhs of the i th constraint is increased by 1. Reduced Cost: RC page 205 For any nonbasic variable X k, the reduced cost is the amount by which the objective function coefficient of X k must be improved before the LP will have an optimal solution in which X k is a basic variable IE 416, Chap 4:3, July 98
