Lexicographic linear programs are fixed-priority multiobjective linear programs that are a useful model of biological systems using flux balance analysis and for goal-programming problems. The objective function values of a lexicographic linear program as a function of its right-hand side are...

In flux balance analysis of metabolic networks, reaction rates and optimal pathways are ascertained by solving a linear program, in which the growth rate is maximized subject to mass-balance constraints, and for which extracellular conditions represent parameters. However, for most large, genome-...
