On the Number of Solutions Generated by the Dual Simplex Method

In this short paper, we give an upper bound for the number of different basic feasible solutions generated by the dual simplex method with the most negative pivoting rule for LP. The bound is comparable with the bound given by Kitahara and Mizuno (2010) for the primal simplex method. We apply the result to the … Read more
