Inventory theory
(Taylor & Francis, 2016)Inventory theory is concerned with management of the quantity and timing of the replenishment of assets typically stored to satisfy future demands. In this chapter, we introduce the fundamentals of inventory theory and the ... 
pcenter problems
(Springer, 2015)A pcenter is a minimax solution that consists in a set of p points that minimizes the maximum distance between a demand point and a closest point belonging to that set. We present different variants of that problem. We ... 
Overdetermined systems of linear equations
(Springer, 2009) 
Newsboy inventory problem [reprint]
(John Wiley & Sons, 2010)A definition and classical formulation of the newsboy inventory model as a profit maximization problem is provided. The structure of the optimal stocking policy is given. Alternative formulations of meanvariance, downside ... 
Twosample matching test
(John Wiley & Sons, 2006) 
Location and logistics
(Springer, 2014)Facility location decisions play a critical role in designing logistics networks. This chapter provides some guidelines on how location decisions and logistics functions can be integrated into a single mathematical model ... 
Asymptotic analysis of stochastic models of hierarchic structure and applications in queueing models
(Notable Pubns, 1998)A class of switching stochastic systems with hierarchic state space working in different scales of time ( slow and fast) that are adequate mathematical models at the analysis and modelling of various classes of computing ... 
The green network design problem
(Elsevier, 2019)Logistics activities are at the heart of world trade, but they also have unintended consequences on the environment due to the use of land, energy, and other types of natural resources. The significant energy usage by the ...

Asymptotic analysis of reliability for switching systems in light and heavy traffic conditions
(Birkhäuser, Boston, 2000)An asymptotic analysis of flows of rare events switched by some random environment is provided. An approximation by nonhomogeneous Poisson flows in case of mixing environment is studied. Special notions of Sset and ... 
Diffusion approximation for processes with SemiMarkov switches and applications in queueing models
(Springer, Boston, 1999)Stochastic processes with semiMarkov switches (or in semiMarkov environment) and general Switching processes are considered. In case of asymptotically ergodic environment functional Averaging Principle and Diffusion ... 
Hibernation durations for chain of machines with maintenance under uncertainty
(Springer, 2005)Maintenance of a machine and its replacements by newer ones in the course of a predetermined planning horizon with fixed intermediate dates for potential replacement opportunities is considered. Using the KamienSchwartz ... 
Hub location problems: the location of interacting facilities
(Springer, 2011)O’Kelly’s (1986) classical paper started a new research stream by identifying a connection between spatial interaction models and location theory. The traditional spatial interaction theory applies models of travel behavior ... 
Global manufacturing strategy
(SpringerVerlag, 1995) 
Financial valuation of supply chain contracts
(John Wiley & Sons, 2011)This chapter focuses on a single buyer‐single supplier multiple period quantity flexibility contract in which the buyer has options to order additional quantities of goods in case of a higher than expected demand in addition ... 
Advances in business analytics at HP laboratories
(Springer, Boston, 2010)HP Labs’ Business Optimization Lab is a group of researchers focused on developing innovations in business analytics that deliver value to HP. This chapter describes several activities of the Business Optimization Lab, ...
