This book is a rare gem for Linear Programming. There are subjects covered here that I have not found in any other book on LP, specifically dealing with bounded variables.
I really appreciate the methodical approach to building up the requisite knowledge to understand each section. I recommend this only for people with some background in Linear Algebra, but that's true of any text on Linear Programming. I don't any book is the complete reference on Linear Programming but I think this should be one of the first few you download though.
I find it helpful to have several texts so that I can compare the authors approach in explaining a subject.
Chvatal has a really nice approach. I recommend getting "Introduction to Linear Optimization" by Bertsimas and Tsitsiklis to complement this book. I've been teaching a linear programming course at the advanced undergraduate level out of this book for the last 12 years. I'm still happy with Chvatal's book and haven't found anything better. Prerequisites for this book include some background in linear algebra the typical sophomore level introduction to linear algebra is enough , and some experience with proof based mathematics.
Because the subject does not involve the difficult concepts of analysis, it much like number theory makes a good subject for students to study as they are developing proof writing skills. The first 10 chapters of the book present the simplex method, the revised simplex method, duality theory, and sensitivity analysis. This material can easily be covered in 10 weeks.
The remaining chapters of the book are largely independent, mostly focused on various applications of linear programming and specialization of the simplex method to network flow problems. Chvatal presents the simplex method and many of its applications from a mathematical point of view.
He states and proves theorems, but also provides plenty of motivation. Students who make an effort do develop more mathematical maturity from working through this book. Chvatal also presents the material from a computational and algorithmic point of view.
One of the major points of the book is that the author prefers to use algorithmic proofs. For example, the proof that every standard form LP is either infeasibile, unbounded, or has an optimal BFS is built on the simplex method- Since the algorithm terminates in one of these three states, and can't go into an infinite loop, these are the only possibilities. Another particular strength of the book is in the presentation of duality theory.
