Star phub median problem with modular arc capacities
(Elsevier, 2008)We consider the hub location problem, where p hubs are chosen from a given set of nodes, each nonhub node is connected to exactly one hub and each hub is connected to a central hub. Links are installed on the arcs of the ... 
Statedependent control of a single stage hybrid system with poisson arrivals
(2011)We consider a singlestage hybrid manufacturing system where jobs arrive according to a Poisson process. These jobs undergo a deterministic process which is controllable. We define a stochastic hybrid optimal control problem ... 
Static and dynamic VaR constrained portfolios with application to delegated portfolio management
(2013)We give a closedform solution to the singleperiod portfolio selection problem with a ValueatRisk (VaR) constraint in the presence of a set of risky assets with multivariate normally distributed returns and the riskless ... 
Stochastic assembly line balancing using beam search
(Taylor & Francis, 2005)This paper presents a beam searchbased method for the stochastic assembly line balancing problem in Ulines. The proposed method minimizes total expected cost comprised of total labour cost and total expected incompletion ... 
The stochastic joint replenishment problem: a new policy, analysis, and insights
(John Wiley & Sons, 2006)In this study, we propose a new parsimonious policy for the stochastic joint replenishment problem in a singlelocation, Nitem setting. The replenishment decisions are based on both group reorder pointgroup order quantity ... 
Stochastic lot sizing problem with controllable processing times
(Elsevier, 2015)In this study, we consider the stochastic capacitated lot sizing problem with controllable processing times where processing times can be reduced in return for extra compression cost. We assume that the compression cost ... 
Stochastic lot sizing problem with nervousness considerations
(Elsevier, 2018)In this paper, we consider the multistage stochastic lot sizing problem with controllable processing times under nervousness considerations. We assume that the processing times can be reduced in return for extra cost ... 
A stochastic model for a macroscale hybrid renewable energy system
(Elsevier, 2016)The current supply for electricity generation mostly relies on fossil fuels, which are finite and pose a great threat to the environment. Therefore, energy models that involve clean and renewable energy sources are necessary ... 
A stochastic programming approach for Shelter location and evacuation planning
(EDP Sciences, 20180919)Shelter location and traffic allocation decisions are critical for an efficient evacuation plan. In this study, we propose a scenariobased twostage stochastic evacuation planning model that optimally locates shelter sites ... 
A strong conic quadratic reformulation for machinejob assignment with controllable processing times
(Elsevier, 2009)We describe a polynomialsize conic quadratic reformulation for a machinejob assignment problem with separable convex cost. Because the conic strengthening is based only on the objective of the problem, it can also be ... 
Structured least squares problems and robust estimators
(IEEE, 20101022)A novel approach is proposed to provide robust and accurate estimates for linear regression problems when both the measurement vector and the coefficient matrix are structured and subject to errors or uncertainty. A new ... 
Structured least squares with bounded data uncertainties
(IEEE, 2009)In many signal processing applications the core problem reduces to a linear system of equations. Coefficient matrix uncertainties create a significant challenge in obtaining reliable solutions. In this paper, we present a ... 
A study of scheduling rules of flexible manufacturing systems: A simulation approach
(Taylor & Francis, 1998)This study examines the effects of scheduling rules on the performance of flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs). Several machine and AGV scheduling rules are tested against the mean flowtime criterion. In general, scheduling ... 
A study on curing processes and environmental effects for rapid composite repair
(2011)This article focuses on scarf joint comprised of vacuumprecured, vacuumcocured, autoclaveprocured, and autoclavecocured composite patches bonded to autoclave and vacuumprecured parent laminates. Autoclave and ... 
Style goods pricing with demand learning
(Elsevier, 20090801)For many industries (e.g., apparel retailing) managing demand through price adjustments is often the only tool left to companies once the replenishment decisions are made. A significant amount of uncertainty about the ... 
A subgradient descent algorithm for optimization of initially controllable flow shop systems
(2009)We consider an optimization problem for deterministic flow shop systems processing identical jobs. The service times are initially controllable; they can only be set before processing the first job, and cannot be altered ... 
Sufficient global optimality conditions for bivalent quadratic optimization
(Springer, 2004)We prove a sufficient global optimality condition for the problem of minimizing a quadratic function subject to quadratic equality constraints where the variables are allowed to take values 1 and 1. We extend the condition ... 
Supplier diversification under binomial yield
(Elsevier, 2008)We consider supplier diversification in an EOQ type inventory setting with multiple suppliers and binomial yields. We characterize the optimal policy for the model and show that, in this case, it does not pay to diversify, ... 
Sur l’allocation dynamique de portefeuille robuste contre l’incertitude des rendements moyens
(Taylor & Francis, 2014)In an economy with a negative exponential utility investor facing a set of risky assets with normally distributed returns over multiple periods, we consider the problem of making an ambiguityrobust dynamic portfolio choice ... 
Survivability in hierarchical telecommunications networks
(John Wiley & Sons, 2012)The survivable hierarchical telecommunications network design problem consists of locating concentrators, assigning user nodes to concentrators, and linking concentrators in a reliable backbone network. In this article, ...
