    Linear Programing problem

    I need to minimize a function that looks like that:

    and constraints are:

    My question is that is there a way I can write this problem using matrices and how can I apply simplex method for this problem, if not simplex is any other method more suitable?
    I hope that I am not in wrong subforum and you can help me

    Re: Linear Programing problem

    The summations are not indexed in a meaningful way. $\displaystyle \sum_{k=1}^k a_k$ is meaningless because the upper bound is undefined. How does $k$ go from 1 to $k$? If $k$ is changing with each iteration, it either has no upper bound, or the upper bound is maybe 1?
