Dantzig is known for his development siimplex the simplex algorithm[1] an algorithm for solving linear programming problems, and for his other work with linear programming. In statisticsDantzig solved two open problems in statistical theorywhich he had mistaken for homework after arriving late to a lecture by Jerzy Neyman.

Early in the s dantzif Dantzig family moved from Baltimore to Washington. His mother became a linguist at the Library of Congressand his father became a math tutor at the University of Maryland, College Park.

George Dantzig received his B. He earned his master’s degree in mathematics from the University of Michigan in After a two-year period at the Bureau of Labor Statistics, he enrolled in the doctoral program in mathematics at the University of California, Berkeleywhere he studied statistics under Jerzy Neyman. Air Force Office of Statistical Control. Inhe returned to Berkeley to complete the requirements of his program and received his Ph. A year later, the Program in Operations Research became a full-fledged department.

Later he became the C. Criley Professor of Transportation Sciences at Stanfordand kept going, well beyond his mandatory retirement in Dantzig was the recipient of many honors, including the first John von Neumann Theory Prize inthe National Medal of Science in[5] an honorary doctorate from the University of Maryland, College Park in Dantzig Prizebestowed every three years since on one or two people who have made a significant impact in the field of mathematical programming.

Dantzig died on May 13,in his home in Stanford, Californiaof complications from diabetes and cardiovascular disease. He was 90 years old. Freund wrote further that “through his research in mathematical theory, computation, economic analysis, and applications to industrial problems, Dantzig contributed more than any other researcher to the remarkable development of linear programming”.

Dantzig’s work allows the airline industry, for example, to schedule crews and make fleet assignments. Based on his work tools are developed “that shipping companies use to determine how many planes they need and where their delivery trucks should be deployed.


The oil industry long has used linear programming in refinery planning, as it determines how much of its raw product should become different grades of gasoline and how much should be used for petroleum-based byproducts. It is used in manufacturing, revenue management, telecommunications, advertising, architecture, circuit design and countless other areas”.

An event in Dantzig’s life became the origin of a famous story inwhile he was a graduate student at UC Berkeley. Near the beginning of a class for which Dantzig was late, professor Jerzy Neyman wrote two examples of famously unsolved statistics problems on the blackboard. When Dantzig arrived, he assumed that the two problems were a homework assignment and wrote them down.

Simplex algorithm

According to Dantzig, the problems “seemed to be a little harder than usual”, but a few days later he handed in completed solutions for the two problems, still believing that they were an assignment that was overdue. Six weeks later, Dantzig received a visit from an excited professor Neyman, who was eager to tell him that the homework problems he had solved were two of the most famous veorge problems in statistics.

A year later, when I began to worry about a thesis topic, Neyman just shrugged and told me to wrap the two problems in a binder and he would accept them as my thesis. Years later another researcher, Abraham Waldsumplex preparing to publish an article that arrived at a conclusion for the second problem, and included Dantzig as its co-author when he learned of the earlier solution.

This story began to spread and was used as a motivational lesson demonstrating the power of positive thinking. Over time Dantzig’s name was removed, and facts were altered, but the basic story persisted in the form of an urban legend and as an introductory scene in the movie Good Will Hunting.

Linear programming is a mathematical method for determining a way to achieve the best outcome such as maximum profit or lowest cost in a given mathematical model for some list of requirements represented as linear relationships. Linear programming arose as a mathematical model developed during World War II to plan expenditures and returns in order to reduce costs to the army and increase losses to the enemy.

It was kept secret until Postwar, many industries found its use in their daily planning. The founders of this subject are Leonid Kantorovicha Russian mathematician who developed linear programming problems inDantzig, who published the simplex method inand John von Neumannwho developed the theory of the duality in the same year.

Dantzig’s original example of finding the best assignment of 70 people to 70 jobs exemplifies the usefulness of linear programming. The computing power required to test all the permutations to select the best assignment is vast; the number of possible configurations exceeds the number of particles in the universe.


However, it takes only a moment to find the optimum solution by posing the problem as a linear program and applying the Simplex algorithm. The theory behind linear programming drastically reduces the number of possible optimal solutions that must be checked.
