Get the dual solution belonging to the given tableau

MuPAD® notebooks will be removed in a future release. Use MATLAB® live scripts instead.

MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, though there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.




linopt::Transparent::dual_prices(tableau) returns the dual solution of the linear optimization problem given by tableau.

This procedure returns the dual solution belonging to the given tableau in form of a set of lists containing two elements, the first one is a restriction and the second one is the value belonging to the slack variable connected to the restriction in the dual solution.


Example 1

Here it is demonstrated that the dual solution of the final tableau is similar to the second element of the result of linopt::minimize using the option DualPrices:

First we compute the final tableau of the simplex algorithm:

k := [{x <= 2, y <= 2, x + 2*y >= 4}, - x + y, NonNegative]:
t := linopt::Transparent(k):
t := linopt::Transparent::simplex(t)

Now we compute the solutions:

linopt::minimize(k, DualPrices)[2]

delete k, t:

Example 2

We compute the dual solution of another linear program:

k := [{x <= 2, y <= 2, x + 2*y >= 4}, -x + y, NonNegative]:
t := linopt::Transparent(k);

delete k, t:



A simplex tableau of domain type linopt::Transparent

Return Values

Set of lists, each containing 2 elements.
