Title: Estimation of Supply Functions by Linear Programming: A Note
Authors: Nuthall, Peter L.
Issue Date: 1969-09
Abstract: A method of determining mutually applicable supply functions, using the simplex method of linear programming, for products required in some kind of fixed proportion is outlined. The technique involves estimating the horizontal segments of a step supply function, i.e. the marginal cost function, rather than the usual method of estimating the vertical segments. The technique is demonstrated using a hypothetical milk farm.
