#### A goal programming approach to mixed-model assembly line balancing problem

(Elsevier, 1997)

In this paper, a binary goal programming model for the mixed-model assembly line balancing (ALB) problem is developed. The model is based on the concepts developed by Patterson and Albracht [1] and the model of Deckro and ...

#### Solving school bus routing problems through integer programming

(Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., 2007)

In this paper, an exact solution approach is described for solving a real-life school bus routing problem (SBRP) for transporting the students of an elementary school throughout central Ankara, Turkey. The problem is ...

#### Computing moments of first passage times to a subset of states in Markov chains

(SIAM, 2005)

This paper presents a relatively efficient and accurate method to compute the moments of first passage times to a subset of states in finite ergodic Markov chains. With the proposed method, the moment computation problem ...

#### Problem-based learning in an intercultural business communication course: communication challenges in intercultural relationships in internationalizing small-or medium-sized enterprises

(Sage Publications, Inc., 2008)

Teachers of intercultural business communication may want to consider using problem-based learning (PBL), an instructional approach that places learners in problem-solving situations, that is, students are presented with ...

#### The network design problem with relays

(Elsevier, 2007)

The network design problem with relays (NDPR) is defined on an undirected graph G = (V, E, K), where V = {1, ..., n} is a vertex set, E = {(i, j) : i, j ∈ V, i < j} is an edge set. The set K = {(o(k), d(k))} is a set ...

#### Componentwise bounds for nearly completely decomposable Markov chains using stochastic comparison and reordering

(Elsevier, 2005)

This paper presents an improved version of a componentwise bounding algorithm for the state probability vector of nearly completely decomposable Markov chains, and on an application it provides the first numerical results ...

#### Sensitivity minimization by stable controllers: an interpolation approach for suboptimal solutions

(IEEE, 2007)

Weighted sensitivity minimization is studied within the framework of strongly stabilizing (stable)H∞controller design for a class of infinite dimensional systems. This problem has been solved by Ganesh and Pearson, [8], ...

#### Ses ve video işaretlerinde saklı markof modeli tabanlı düşen kişi tespiti

(IEEE, 2006-04)

Automatic detection of a falling person in video is an important problem with applications in security and safety areas including supportive home environments and CCTV surveillance systems. Human motion in video is modeled ...

#### Iterative solution of composite problems with the combined-field integral equation

(IEEE, 2007)

We consider the solution of electromagnetic problems related to microwave applications involving composite geometries with coexisting open and closed conductors. Combined-field integral equation is introduced on the closed ...

#### TSCP: a tabu search algorithm for wavelength converting node placement in WDM optical networks

(IEEE, 2005)

Sparse wavelength conversion can increase the performance of all-optical wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks signi cantly by relaxing the wavelength continuity constraint. In this paper, we study the wavelength ...
