  • Inventory theory 

    Gürler, Ülkü; Berk, Emre (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 ...
  • p-center problems 

    Çalık, Hatice; Labbé, M.; Yaman, Hande (Springer, 2015)
    A p-center 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 

    Pınar, Mustafa Ç. (Springer, 2009)
  • Newsboy inventory problem [reprint] 

    Gürler, Ülkü; Berk, Emre (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 mean-variance, down-side ...
  • Two-sample matching test 

    Gürler, Ülkü (John Wiley & Sons, 2006)
  • Location and logistics 

    Alumur, Sibel A.; Kara, Bahar Y.; Melo, M. T. (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 

    Anisimov, Vladimir V. (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 

    Dükkancı, Okan; Bektaş, T.; Kara, Bahar Y. (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 ...
  • Reverse Hazard 

    Gürler, Ülkü (John Wiley & Sons, 2006)

  • Hazard change point estimation 

    Gürler, Ülkü (John Wiley & Sons, 2006)
  • Cumulative vehicle routing problems 

    Kara, İmdat; Kara, Bahar Yetiş; Yetiş, M. K. (In-Teh, 2008)
  • Asymptotic analysis of reliability for switching systems in light and heavy traffic conditions 

    Anisimov, Vladimir V. (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 S-set and ...
  • Diffusion approximation for processes with Semi-Markov switches and applications in queueing models 

    Anisimov, Vladimir V. (Springer, Boston, 1999)
    Stochastic processes with semi-Markov switches (or in semi-Markov environment) and general Switching processes are considered. In case of asymptotically ergodic environment functional Averaging Principle and Diffusion ...
  • An integrated replenishment and transportation model: Computational performance assessment 

    Kian, R.; Berk, Emre; Gürler, Ülkü (CRC Press, 2014)
  • Hibernation durations for chain of machines with maintenance under uncertainty 

    Doğramacı, Ali (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 Kamien-Schwartz ...
  • Hub location problems: the location of interacting facilities 

    Kara, Bahar Y.; Taner, Mehmet R. (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 

    Dinçer, M. Cemal; Verter, Vedat (Springer-Verlag, 1995)
