Is there any book about the history of linear programming? I would like to know more about the persons involved in the beginning of the field. I know about Kantorovich, Dantzig and Von Neumann, but I'm searching for a book that organizes the history in a chronological narrative and reports about the people involved but not as famous as the previous three.

  • $\begingroup$ I take it that you have already searched online for history of linear programming? There are lots of articles. A search on Google Scholar also yields plenty of results. scholar.google.com/… $\endgroup$ – chasly - supports Monica Jan 25 at 13:07

I suggest having a look at the following book:

Grötschel, M. (Ed.). (2012). Optimization stories. Dt. Mathematiker-Vereinigung.

The book has a number of chapters and in particular a chapter titled "Linear Programming Stories" which can interest you.
