Analysis of a decentralized supply chain under partial cooperation
(2005)In this article, we analyze a decentralized supply chain consisting of a supplier and two independent retailers. In each order cycle, retailers place their orders at the supplier to minimize inventoryrelated expected costs ... 
Analyzing impact of experience curve on ROI in the software product line adoption process
(Elsevier BV, 2015)Context Experience curve is a wellknown concept in management and education science, which explains the phenomenon of increased worker efficiency with repetitive production of a good or service. Objective We aim to analyze ... 
Average Fisher information maximisation in presence of costconstrained measurements
(The Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2011)An optimal estimation framework is considered in the presence of costconstrained measurements. The aim is to maximise the average Fisher information under a constraint on the total cost of measurement devices. An optimisation ... 
Bidding structure, market efficiency and persistence in a multitime tariff setting
(Elsevier, 2016)The purpose of this study is to examine the fractal dynamics of day ahead electricity prices by using parametric and semi parametric approaches for each time zone in a multitime tariff setting in the framework of bidding ... 
A bilevel uncapacitated location/pricing problem with Hotelling access costs in onedimensional space
(International Conference on Information Systems, Logistics and Supply Chain, 2016)We formulate a spatial pricing problem as bilevel noncapacitated location: A leader first decides which facilities to open and sets service prices taking competing offers into account; then, customers make individual ... 
A branch and price approach for routing and refueling station location model
(Elsevier, 2016)The deviation flow refueling location problem is to locate p refueling stations in order to maximize the flow volume that can be refueled respecting the range limitations of the alternative fuel vehicles and the shortest ... 
A branchandprice algorithm for the vehicle routing problem with roaming delivery locations
(Elsevier Ltd, 2017)We study the vehicle routing problem with roaming delivery locations in which the goal is to find a leastcost set of delivery routes for a fleet of capacitated vehicles and in which a customer order has to be delivered ... 
A capacitated hub location problem under hose demand uncertainty
(Elsevier, 2017)In this study, we consider a capacitated multiple allocation hub location problem with hose demand uncertainty. Since the routing cost is a function of demand and capacity constraints are imposed on hubs, demand uncertainty ... 
Cellular manufacturing system design using a holonistic approach
(Taylor & Francis, 2000)We propose an integrated algorithm that will solve the partfamily and machinecell formation problem by simultaneously considering the withincell layout problem. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study that ... 
The choice of monetary policy tool(s) and relative price variability: evidence from Turkey
(A N S I Network, 2009)The aim of this study is to assess any regularity relative price dispersion for the effect of monetary policy tool selection. Central banks use tools such as interbank rate and exchange rate when pursuing their (monetary) ... 
Classifying human leg motions with uniaxial piezoelectric gyroscopes
(2009)This paper provides a comparative study on the different techniques of classifying human leg motions that are performed using two lowcost uniaxial piezoelectric gyroscopes worn on the leg. A number of feature sets, extracted ... 
Consensus as a Nash Equilibrium of a Dynamic Game
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2017)Consensus formation in a social network is modeled by a dynamic game of a prescribed duration played by members of the network. Each member independently minimizes a cost function that represents his/her motive. An integral ... 
Correlation Tracking Based on Wavelet Domain Information
(2004)Tracking moving objects in video can be carried out by correlating a template containing object pixels with pixels of the current frame. This approach may produce erroneous results under noise. We determine a set of ... 
Costaware strategies for query result caching in Web search engines
(Association for Computing Machinery, 2011)Search engines and largescale IR systems need to cache query results for efficiency and scalability purposes. Static and dynamic caching techniques (as well as their combinations) are employed to effectively cache query ... 
Denoising using projections onto the epigraph set of convex cost functions
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2014)A new denoising algorithm based on orthogonal projections onto the epigraph set of a convex cost function is presented. In this algorithm, the dimension of the minimization problem is lifted by one and feasibility sets ... 
Design and analysis of mechanisms for decentralized joint replenishment
(Elsevier B.V., 2017)We consider jointly replenishing multiple firms that operate under an EOQ like environment in a decentralized, noncooperative setting. Each firm's demand rate and inventory holding cost rate are private information. We ... 
Discretetime pricing and optimal exercise of American perpetual warrants in the geometric random walk model
(2013)An American option (or, warrant) is the right, but not the obligation, to purchase or sell an underlying equity at any time up to a predetermined expiration date for a predetermined amount. A perpetual American option ... 
Dynamic lot sizing problem for a warm/cold process
(Taylor & Francis, 2006)We consider a dynamic lot sizing problem with finite capacity for a process that can be kept warm until the next production period at a unit variable cost ωt only if more than a threshold value has been produced and is ... 
Effective use of space for pivotbased metric indexing structures
(2008)Among the metric space indexing methods, AESA is known to produce the lowest query costs in terms of the number of distance computations. However, its quadratic construction cost and space consumption makes it infeasiblefor ... 
Efficiency of the Turkish stock exchange with respect to monetary variables: a cointegration analysis
(Elsevier BV, 1996)In this study, we test the semistrong form of the efficient market hypothesis in Turkey by using the recently developed techniques in time series econometrics, namely unit roots and cointegration. The long run relationship ...
