Recently in my material science research, I have encountered problems of very large scale linear optimization. I read the introductory book "Introduction to Linear Optimization (Athena Scientific Series in Optimization and Neural Computation, 6)" and I wish to read further trying to resolve the very large scale linear programming problem I encountered.

What books would you suggest me to read to further develop my knowledge? Thank you:)

You might take a look at Kipp Martin's Large Scale Linear and Integer Optimization: A Unified Approach. It has nearly 300 pages just on large-scale methods, including: Benders decomposition, Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition, Lagrangian methods, sparse methods, preprocessing, etc.

The only bad thing is that the book is a little pricey on Amazon, but maybe your university has a copy.
