```Matrix's "OutOfBoundException" in SimplexSolver
-----------------------------------------------

Key: MATH-293
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-293
Project: Commons Math
Issue Type: Bug
Affects Versions: Nightly Builds
Environment: java 1.6 on Windows XP 32-Bit
Reporter: Andrea

Hi all,
This bug is somehow related to incident MATH-286, but not necessarily...

Let's say I have an LP and I solve it using SimplexSolver. Then I create a second LP similar
to the first one, but with "stronger" constraints. The second LP has the following properties:
* the only point in the feasible region for the second LP is the solution returned for the
first LP
* the solution returned for the first LP is also the (only possible) solution to the second
LP

This shows the problem:

{code:borderStyle=solid}
LinearObjectiveFunction f = new LinearObjectiveFunction(new double[] { 0.8, 0.2, 0.7, 0.3,
0.4, 0.6}, 0 );
Collection<LinearConstraint> constraints = new ArrayList<LinearConstraint>();
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0 }, Relationship.EQ, 30.0));
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1 }, Relationship.EQ, 30.0));
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 0.8, 0.2, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 }, Relationship.GEQ,
10.0));
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 0.0, 0.0, 0.7, 0.3, 0.0, 0.0 }, Relationship.GEQ,
10.0));
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.4, 0.6 }, Relationship.GEQ,
10.0));

RealPointValuePair solution = new SimplexSolver().optimize(f, constraints, GoalType.MAXIMIZE,
true);

double valA = 0.8 * solution.getPoint()[0] + 0.2 * solution.getPoint()[1];
double valB = 0.7 * solution.getPoint()[2] + 0.3 * solution.getPoint()[3];
double valC = 0.4 * solution.getPoint()[4] + 0.6 * solution.getPoint()[5];

f = new LinearObjectiveFunction(new double[] { 0.8, 0.2, 0.7, 0.3, 0.4, 0.6}, 0 );
constraints = new ArrayList<LinearConstraint>();
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0 }, Relationship.EQ, 30.0));
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1 }, Relationship.EQ, 30.0));
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 0.8, 0.2, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 }, Relationship.GEQ,
valA));
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 0.0, 0.0, 0.7, 0.3, 0.0, 0.0 }, Relationship.GEQ,
valB));
constraints.add(new LinearConstraint(new double[] { 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.4, 0.6 }, Relationship.GEQ,
valC));

solution = new SimplexSolver().optimize(f, constraints, GoalType.MAXIMIZE, true);
{code}

Instead of returning the solution, SimplexSolver throws an Exception:

{noformat} Exception in thread "main" org.apache.commons.math.linear.MatrixIndexException:

I was too optimistic with the bug MATH-286 ;-)
