, 1955, vol. 2, issue 1‐2, 8397 Assuming that numerical scores are available for the performance of each of n persons on each of n jobs, the “assignment problem” is the quest for an assignment of persons to jobs so that the sum of the n scores so obtained is as large as possible. It is shown that ideas latent in the work of two Hungarian mathematicians may be exploited to yield a new method of solving this problem. 1955 (137) (external link) This item may be available elsewhere in EconPapers: for items with the same title.

The Hungarian Method for the Assignment Problem Introduction byRelated PapersDiscrete Applied Mathematics Matthew Saltzman In this essay, we will \discover" the dual problem associated with an LP. We will see how to interpret the meanings of the dual decision variables in the context of the original problem, and we will present some theorems (\facts") about the relationship between the optimal primal and dual solutions that will lead us to the key ideas of the simplex method for solving LPs. Abstract The theory of duality for linear programs is welldeveloped and has been successful in advancing both the theory and practice of linear programming. In principle, much of this broad framework can be extended to mixedinteger linear programs, but this has proven difficult, in part because duality theory does not integrate well with current computational practice. Surveys in Combinatorial Optimization Mathematical Programming ELSIE GOTTLIEB Mathematical … dulce ponceleon Vijay Chandru The theory of flows in networks began to evolve in the early 1950’s.The various linear optimisation questions that could be asked of flows in conserving networks turned out to be neat combinatorial specialisations of linear programming. The simplex method (and its variants) turned out to have very pretty combinatorial interpretations on networks. The algebraic dexterity of linear programming duality led to a unified treatment of many deep theorems in graph theory and combinatorics. In this part, the last of the series on linear programming, we will see glimpses of the theory of network flows through a specific flow optimisation problem — the maximum flow problem.

THE HUNGARIAN METHOD FOR THE ASSIGNMENT. PROBLEM'. H. W. Kuhn. Bryn Y a w College. Assuming that numerical scores are available for the perform ance of each of n persons on each of n jobs, the "assignment problem" is the quest for an assignment of persons to jobs so that the sum of the. n scores so obtained is as large as possible.
together, the Hungarian Method was born. I tested the algorithm by solving 12 by 12 problems with random 3digit ratings by hand. I could do any such problem, with pencil and paper, in no more than 2 hours. This seemed to be much better than any other method known at the time. The paper was published in Naval Research Logistics Quarterly. This ...

The Hungarian method is a combinatorial optimization algorithm that solves the assignment problem in polynomial time and which anticipated later primaldual methods.It was developed and published in 1955 by Harold Kuhn, who gave it the name "Hungarian method" because the algorithm was largely based on the earlier works of two Hungarian mathematicians, Dénes Kőnig and Jenő Egerváry.
