In this lecture, we first proved the strong duality theorem for general linear programs. We then introduced Renegar's condition numbers and used them to bound how much the value of a linear program can change as it is perturbed. Material for this part of the lecture came from:

  title = "Incorporating condition measures into the complexity theory
    of linear programming",
  journal = "SIAM Journal on Optimization",
