A Consensus Reading List for Operational Research


Try double-clicking if this is too small!

In another attempt at drawing up a reading list for operational research, I did a Google search on “reading list” AND (“operational research” OR “operations research” OR “management science”).  Confining myself to what seemed to be relevant cases, I got contributions from the following institutions:  Southampton, Derby, Strathclyde, Edinburgh, Cass Business School, Aston, Imperial College, Leicester, Wisconsin, Dublin City University, Nottingham, George Mason University, Sheffield, London University International Programme, Napier, Leiden.  The table above shows those items that occurred more than once, except I omitted a book on Linear Programming in MATLAB as being of no interest outside a teaching context.

Well, it all depends on what you’re teaching of course.  And the level of bibliographic detail depends on the source.  Rosenhead et al, Chatfield and Pidd (2004) should be of some use to practitioners anyway.
