The simplex method is one of the most fundamental technologies for solving linear programming (LP) problems and has been widely applied to different practical applications. In the past literature, how to improve and accelerate the simplex method has attracted plenty of research. One important way to achieve this goal is to find a better initialization method for the simplex. In this survey, we aim to provide an overview about the initialization methods in the primal and dual simplex,
