N2 - Since the introduction of general-purpose computers during the early 1950's, competing techniques of mathematical programming have been developed, analyzed empirically, and compared. In this study the authors survey fifty articles (spanning the period 1953-1977) which report the computational testing of mathematical programming algorithms. The objective is to document the performance measures which were used, the standards which were maintained, and suggestions for improving the current state of affairs are offered.
