A Linear Programming Model for Air Pollution Control

Overview

Planning and evaluating air pollution control strategies is a difficult and demanding task requiring the application of the most advanced technical and computational resources that are available to the analyst. In this book, an economist applies the powerful tool of linear programming to develop a model that can be used by policy makers seeking to achieve specific goals in air pollution abatement. The author has implemented his model using engineering, meteorological, industrial, and pollution data taken from the St. Louis airshed.
