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 MonicaJan 25, 2021 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.
