Markdown budgets for retail buyers: help or hindrance?
(WileyBlackwell, 2017)For many retailers, markdown decisions are taken by retail buyers whose compensation is based on sales revenue so their objective is to maximize it through the season. This implies that the buyers' objectives are not ... 
Matchup scheduling under a machine breakdown
(Elsevier, 1999)When a machine breakdown forces a modified flow shop (MFS) out of the prescribed state, the proposed strategy reschedules part of the initial schedule to match up with the preschedule at some point. The objective is to ... 
Matching patient and physician preferences in designing a primary care facility network
(Palgrave Macmillan, 20140401)This paper introduces an integer programming model for planning primary care facility networks, which accounts for the interests of different stakeholders while maximizing access to health care. Physician allocation to ... 
Mean semideviation from a target and robust portfolio choice under distribution and mean return ambiguity
(Elsevier, 20140315)We consider the problem of optimal portfolio choice using the lower partial moments risk measure for a market consisting of n risky assets and a riskless asset. For when the mean return vector and variance/covariance ... 
Measures of model uncertainty and calibrated option bounds
(Taylor & Francis, 2009)Recently, Cont introduced a quantitative framework for measuring model uncertainty in the context of derivative pricing [Model uncertainty and its impact on the pricing of derivative instruments, Math. Finance, 16(3) (2006), ... 
A mechanistic approach to investigate drilling of UDCFRP laminates with PCD drills
(Elsevier, 2014)Carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRPs) possess desirable material properties that satisfy the aerospace industry's high strength to weight ratio objective. Therefore, CFRPs are commonly used in structural parts, either ... 
Mechanistic force modeling for milling of carbon fiber reinforced polymers with double helix tools
(Elsevier, 2013)Carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) have emerged as the material of choice to satisfy increasing demand for lighter aircrafts. Machinability characteristics of CFRPs are quite different than those of metals; therefore, ... 
Mechanistic force modeling for milling of unidirectional carbon fiber reinforced polymer laminates
(201206)Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) usage in the aerospace industry has been steadily increasing due to its superior material properties such as high strength, low weight, high resistance to corrosion, and a low thermal ... 
Mechanistic modeling of micro milling including tool runout
(Gazi Üniversitesi MühendislikMimarlik, 2018)Micro milling is widely used in precision manufacturing industry to produce micro components made from difficulttocut materials. High material removal rate and ability to create good surface quality are the major advantages. ... 
Mesh topology design in overlay virtual private networks
(IET, 2002)The mesh topology design problem in overlay virtual private networks is studied. Given a set of customer nodes and an associated traffic matrix, tunnels that connect node pairs through a service provider network are ... 
Micro tool design and fabrication: a review
(Elsevier, 2018)Mechanical micromachining is considered as a costeffective and efficient fabrication technique to produce three dimensional features and freeform surfaces from various engineering materials. Micro cutting tools are an ... 
Microstructure effects on process outputs in micro scale milling of heat treated Ti6Al4V titanium alloys
(Elsevier, 2018)This study investigates the influence of materials’ microstructural characteristics, including grain size and phase fractions, in micro end milling of heat treated Ti6Al4V titanium alloys. Micro milling process conditions ... 
Milling force modelling of multidirectional carbon fiber reinforced polymer laminates
(Elsevier, 2012)Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) usage in the aerospace industry has been steadily increasing due to its superior material properties such as high strength, low weight, high resistance to corrosion, and a low thermal ... 
Mindegree constrained minimum spanning tree problem: New formulation via MillerTuckerZemlin constraints
(Elsevier, 201001)Given an undirected network with positive edge costs and a positive integer d > 2, the minimumdegree constrained minimum spanning tree problem is the problem of finding a spanning tree with minimum total cost such that ... 
Minimal conic quadratic reformulations and an optimization model
(Elsevier, 2019)In this paper, we consider a particular form of inequalities which involves product of multiple variables with rational exponents. These inequalities can equivalently be represented by a number of conic quadratic forms ... 
Minimizing Lmax for the single machine scheduling problem with family setups
(Taylor & Francis, 2004)A procedure for the single machinescheduling problem of minimizing the maximum lateness for jobs with sequence independent setups is presented. The procedure provides optimal/nearoptimal solutions over a wide range of ... 
Minimum cost path problem for Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicles
(Elsevier Ltd, 2015)We introduce a practically important and theoretically challenging problem: finding the minimum cost path for PHEVs in a road network with refueling and charging stations. We show that this problem is NPcomplete and present ... 
Minisum and maximin aerial surveillance over disjoint rectangles
(Springer Verlag, 2016)The aerial surveillance problem (ASP) is finding the shortest path for an aerial surveillance platform that has to visit each rectangular area once and conduct a search in strips to cover the area at an acceptable level ... 
Mixedinteger secondorder cone programming for lower hedging of American contingent claims in incomplete markets
(2013)We describe a challenging class of large mixedinteger secondorder cone programming models which arise in computing the maximum price that a buyer is willing to disburse to acquire an American contingent claim in an ... 
Mixedmodel assembly line sequencing using beam search
(Taylor & Francis, 2007)In today's manufacturing environments, companies have to produce a large variety of products in small quantities on a single assembly line. In this paper, we use a beam search (BS) approach to solve the modelsequencing ...
