### Abstract

. Assuming that the reader is familiar with both the primal and dual simplex methods, Zionts' criss-cross method can easily be explained. ffl It can be initialized by any, possibly both primal and dual infeasible basis . If the basis is optimal, we are done. If the basis is not optimal , then there are some primal or dual infeasible variables. One might choose any of these. It is advised to choose once a primal and then a dual infeasible variable, if possible. ffl If the selected variable is dual infeasible, then it enters the basis and the leaving variable is chosen among the primal feasible variables in such a way that primal feasibility of the currently primal feasible variables is preserved. If no such basis exchange is possible another infeasible variable is selected. ffl If the selected variable is primal infeasible, then it leaves the basis and the entering variable is chosen among th
