    • An Elasticity Approach to the Newsvendor with Price Sensitive Demand 

      Kocabiyikoglu, A.; Popescu, I. (INFORMS, 2011-04)
      We introduce a measure of elasticity of stochastic demand, called the elasticity of the lost-sales rate, which offers a unifying perspective on the well-known newsvendor with pricing problem. This new concept provides a ...

    • Free parking for all in shopping malls 

      Hasker, K.; Inci, E. (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, 2014)
