Awarded the Frederick W. Lanchester Prize in 1994 for its valuable contributions to operations research and the management sciences, this mathematically rigorous book remains the standard reference on the linear complementarity problem. Readers will find

  • a comprehensive treatment of the computation of equilibria arising from engineering, economics, and finance; 
  • chapter-ending exercises and ÒNotes and ReferencesÓ sections that make it equally useful for a graduate-level course or for self-study;
  • corrections and revisions of difficult passages from the 1992 edition; and 
  • an updated bibliography.

This book is intended for researchers and graduate students in various fields including optimization, game theory, and finance, and diverse engineering disciplines, especially computer science and mechanical engineering.
