Farkas’ lemma is a celebrated result on the solutions of systems of linear inequalities, which finds application pervasively in mathematics and computer science. In this work we show how to formulate and prove Farkas’ lemma in diagrammatic polyhedral algebra, a sound and complete graphical calculus for polyhedra.

Abstract

Farkas’ lemma is a celebrated result on the solutions of systems of linear inequalities, which finds application pervasively in mathematics and computer science. In this work we show how to formulate and prove Farkas’ lemma in diagrammatic polyhedral algebra, a sound and complete graphical calculus for polyhedra. Furthermore, we show how linear programs can be modeled within the calculus and how some famous duality results can be proved.
