#### Hypersolver: a graphical tool for commonsense set theory

(Elsevier, 1995)

This paper investigates an alternative set theory (due to Aczel) called the Hyperset Theory. Aczel uses a graphical representation for sets and thereby allows the representation of non-well-founded sets. A program, called ...

#### On the stabilization and stability robustness against small delays of some damped wave equations

(IEEE, 1995)

In this note we consider a system which can be modeled by two different one-dimensional damped wave equations in a bounded domain, both parameterized by a nonnegative damping constant. We assume that the system is fixed ...

#### Decentralized blocking zeros and the decentralized strong stabilization problem

(IEEE, 1995)

This paper is concerned with a new system theoretic concept, decentralized blocking zeros, and its applications in the design of decentralized controllers for linear time-invariant finite-dimensional systems. The concept ...

#### Electric breakdown in polycrystalline semiconductors with highly nonlinear I-V characteristics: Simulations for simple barrier height models

(1997)

An extension of the Canessa and Nguyen binary model for the nonlinear current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of polycrystalline semiconductors, based on the electrical properties of individual grains, is presented. Simple ...

#### Scheduling to minimize the coefficient of variation

(Elsevier, 1996)

In this paper, we address the problem of uninterruptedly scheduling a set of independent jobs that are ready at time zero with the objective of minimizing the coefficient of variation (CV) of their completion times. We ...

#### A note on the within-cell layout problem based on operation sequences

(Taylor & Francis, 1996)

The existing studies in the literature usually ignore the within-cell layout problem while forming part families and manufacturing cells. A new approach is proposed to solve the part-family and machine-cell formation problem ...

#### Composite regions of feasibility for certain classes of distance constrained network location problems

(INFORMS, 1996)

Distance constrained network location involves locating m new facilities on a transport network G so as to satisfy upper bounds on distances between pairs of new facilities and pairs of new and existing facilities. The ...

#### A joint production and transportation planning problem with heterogeneous vehicles

(2014)

We consider a manufacturer's planning problem to schedule order production and transportation to respective destinations. The manufacturer in this setting can use two vehicle types for outbound shipments. The first type ...

#### The robust spanning tree problem with interval data

(Elsevier, 2001)

Motivated by telecommunications applications we investigate the minimum spanning tree problem where edge costs are interval numbers. Since minimum spanning trees depend on the realization of the edge costs, we de5ne the ...

#### Joint lot sizing and tool management in a CNC environment

(Elsevier, 1999)

We propose a new algorithm to solve lot sizing, tool allocation and machining conditions optimization problems simultaneously to minimize total production cost in a CNC environment. Most of the existing lot sizing and tool ...
