Data dependent worst case bound improving techniques in zeroone programming
(Elsevier BV, 1991)A simple perturbation of data is suggested for use in conjunction with approximation algorithms for the purpose of improving the available bounds (upper and lower), and the worst case bounds. The technique does not require ... 
A datalevel parallel linearquadratic penalty algorithm for multicommodity network flows
(Association for Computing Machinery, 1994)We describe the development of a datalevel, massively parallel software system for the solution of multicommodity network flow problems. Using a smooth linearquadratic penalty (LQP) algorithm we transform the multicommodity ... 
Debris removal during disaster response: a case for Turkey
(Elsevier, 2016)Debris occurs from the ruin and wreckage of structures during a disaster. Proper removal of debris is of great importance because it blocks roads and prohibits emergency aid teams from accessing disasteraffected regions. ... 
A decomposition approach for undiscounted twoperson zerosum stochastic games
(SpringerVerlag Berlin Heidelberg, 1999)Twoperson zerosum stochastic games are considered under the longrun average expected payoff criterion. State and action spaces are assumed finite. By making use of the concept of maximal communicating classes, the ... 
Delegated portfolio management under ambiguity aversion
(2014)We examine the problem of setting optimal incentives for a portfolio manager hired by an investor who wants to induce ambiguityrobust portfolio choices with respect to estimation errors in expected returns. Adopting a ... 
Demand uncertainty and inventory turnover performance: an empirical analysis of the US retail industry
(Emerald Publishing, 2016)Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of demand uncertainty on inventory turnover performance through empirical modeling. In particular the authors use the inaccuracy of quarterly sales forecasts ... 
A derivation of Lovász' theta via augmented lagrange duality
(E D P Sciences, 2003)A recently introduced dualization technique for binary linear programs with equality constraints, essentially due to Poljak et al. [13], and further developed in Lemar´echal and Oustry [9], leads to simple alternative ... 
Design of a fully automated robotic spotwelding line
(Science and Technology Publications, 2011)The mixed model assembly line design problem includes allocating operations to the stations in the robotic cell and satisfying the demand and cycle time within a desired interval for each model to be produced. We also ... 
A design of experiments approach to military deployment planning problem
(IEEE, 2008)We develop a logistics and transportation simulation that can be used to provide insights into potential outcomes of proposed military deployment plans.More specifically, we model the largescale realworld military ... 
The design of single allocation incomplete hub networks
(Elsevier, 2009)The hub location problem deals with finding the location of hub facilities and allocating the demand nodes to these hub facilities so as to effectively route the demand between any origindestination pair. In the extensive ... 
Designing a road network for hazardous materials shipments
(Elsevier, 2007)We consider the problem of designating hazardous materials routes in and through a major population center. Initially, we restrict our attention to a minimally connected network (a tree) where we can predict accurately the ... 
Designing a road network for hazardous materials transportation
(Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (I N F O R M S), 2004)Dangerousgoods shipments remain regulated despite the widespread deregulation of the transportation industry. This is mainly due to the societal and environmental risks associated with these shipments. One of the common ... 
Designing an intervention strategy for publicinterest goods: The California electric vehicle market case
(Elsevier, 2017)We study the intervention problem for publicinterest goods. Publicinterest goods are known as goods with positive externalities, allowing the consumer as well as others who do not pay for them benefit from the consumption. ... 
Designing cost efficient content distribution networks
(Elsevier, 200708)In this paper, we present a novel technique for the problem of designing a Content Distribution Network (CDN), which is a technology used to efficiently distribute electronic content throughout an existing IP network. Our ... 
Designing emergency response networks for hazardous materials transportation
(2007)Undesirable consequences of dangerous goods incidents can be mitigated by quick arrival of specialized response teams at the accident site. We present a novel methodology to determine the optimal design of a specialized ... 
Designing intervention scheme for vaccine market: a bilevel programming approach
(Springer, 2019)Publicinterest goods benefit consumers and also generate external benefits boosting societal welfare. Despite this characteristic of these goods, their level of consumption or production are generally well below the ... 
Development of an iterative learning controller for polymer based microstereolithography prototyping systems
(IEEE, 2016)Additive manufacturing has become increasingly popular for a wide range of applications in recent years. Microstereolithography (μSLA) is a popular method for obtaining polymerbased parts. Systems using the μSLA approach ... 
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 ... 
Diffusion approximation in overloaded switching queueing models
(Springer, 2002)The asymptotic behavior of a queueing process in overloaded statedependent queueing models (systems and networks) of a switching structure is investigated. A new approach to study fluid and diffusion approximation type ...
