    • Auction based scheduling for distributed systems 

      Zarifoglu, E.; Sabuncuoglu I. (2006)
      Businesses deal with huge databases over a geographically distributed supply network. When this is combined with scheduling and planning needs, it becomes too difficult to handle. Recently, Fast Consumer Goods sector tends ...

      Çapin, Tolga; Haro, A.; Setlur, V.; Wilkinson, S. (Springer, 2006-11)
      Mobile virtual environments, with real-time 3D and 2D graphics, are now possible on smart phone and other camera-enabled devices. Using computer vision, the camera sensor can be treated as an input modality in applications ...
    • Centralized and decentralized management of groundwater with multiple users 

      Saleh, Y.; Gürler, Ü.; Berk, E. (Elsevier, 2011)
      In this work, we investigate two groundwater inventory management schemes with multiple users in a dynamic game-theoretic structure: (i) under the centralized management scheme, users are allowed to pump water from a common ...
    • Common knowledge and state-dependent equilibria 

      Dalkıran, Nuh Aygun; Hoffman, M.; Paturi, R.; Ricketts, D.; Vattani, A. (Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2012)
      Many puzzling social behaviors, such as avoiding eye contact, using innuendos, and insignificant events that trigger revolutions, seem to relate to common knowledge and coordination, but the exact relationship has yet to ...
    • Consensus as a Nash equilibrium of a dynamic game 

      Niazi, Muhammad Umar B.; Özgüler, Arif Bülent; Yıldız, Aykut (IEEE, 2016)
      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 ...
    • Contracting under uncertain capacity 

      Jemai, Z.; Erkip, N. K.; Dallery, Y. (Inderscience publishers, 2010)
      In this paper, we develop a two-stage supply-chain in which a supplier with uncertain capacity sells to a retailer facing a Newsvendor problem. We analyze the centralized system where both partners take their decisions ...
    • Coordination of staffing and pricing decisions in a service firm 

      Serel, D. A.; Erel, E. (John Wiley & Sons, 2008)
      Customer demand is sensitive to the price paid for the service in many service environments. Using queueing theory framework, we develop profit maximization models for jointly determining the price and the staffing level ...
    • Design and analysis of mechanisms for decentralized joint replenishment 

      Güler, K.; Körpeoğlu, E.; Şen, A. (Elsevier B.V., 2017)
      We consider jointly replenishing multiple firms that operate under an EOQ like environment in a decentralized, non-cooperative setting. Each firm's demand rate and inventory holding cost rate are private information. We ...
    • Essays in collective decision making 

      Derya, Ayşe Mutlu (Bilkent University, 2014-10)
      Four different problems in collective decision making are studied, all of which are either formulated directly in a game-theoretical context or are concerned with neighboring research areas. The rst two problems fall ...
    • Essays on non-cooperative inventory games 

      Körpeoğlu, Evren (Bilkent University, 2012)
      In this thesis we study different non–cooperative inventory games. In particular, we focus on joint replenishment games and newsvendor duopoly under asymmetric information. Chapter 1 contains introduction and motivation ...
    • Evolutionary explanations of Syrian—Turkish water conflict 

      Güner, Serdar Ş. (Springer, Dordrecht, 2008)
      The issues of water and territory dominate relations between Syria and Turkey, upstream and downstream riparians in the Euphrates and Tigris basin. This chapter propose an evolutionary game to explore eventual trajectories ...
    • Foraging swarms as Nash equilibria of dynamic games 

      Özgüler, A. B.; Yildiz, A. (IEEE, 2014)
      The question of whether foraging swarms can form as a result of a noncooperative game played by individuals is shown here to have an affirmative answer. A dynamic game played by N agents in 1-D motion is introduced and ...
    • Game theoretic modeling of driver and vehicle interactions for verification and validation of autonomous vehicle control systems 

      Li, N.; Oyler, D.W.; Zhang M.; Yildiz, Y.; Kolmanovsky, I.; Girard, A. R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2018)
      Autonomous driving has been the subject of increased interest in recent years both in industry and in academia. Serious efforts are being pursued to address legal, technical, and logistical problems and make autonomous ...
    • A game theoretical framework for the evaluation of unmanned aircraft systems airspace integration concepts 

      Musavi, Neginsadat (Bilkent University, 2017-08)
      Predicting the outcomes of integrating Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) into the National Aerospace (NAS) is a complex problem which is required to be addressed by simulation studies before allowing the routine access of ...
    • A game theoretical modeling and simulation framework for the integration of unmanned aircraft systems in to the national airspace 

      Musavi N.; Tekelioglu K.B.; Yildiz Y.; Gunes K.; Onural D. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA, 2016)
      The focus of this paper is to present a game theoretical modeling and simulation frame- work for the integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace system (NAS). The problem of predicting the ...
