Optimal multi-period consumption and investment with short-sale constraints
This article examines agents’ consumption-investment problem in a multi-period pure exchange economy where agents are constrained with the short-sale of state-dependent risky contingent claims. In equilibrum, agents ...
Effect of load, processing time and due date variation on the effectiveness of scheduling rules
(Taylor & Francis, 2002)
In real manufacturing environments, variations in production factors (i.e. pro- cessing time, demand, due-dates) are inevitable facts. All these dynamic changes, together with random disturbances (e.g. machine breakdowns) ...
Multihoist cyclic scheduling with fixed processing and transfer times
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2007-07)
In this paper, we study the no-wait multihoist cyclic scheduling problem, in which the processing times in the tanks and the transfer times between tanks are constant parameters, and develop a polynomial optimal solution ...
Parameter selection in genetic algorithms
(International Institute of Informatics and Cybernetics, 2004)
In this study, we provide a new taxonomy of parameters of genetic algorithms (GA), structural and numerical parameters, and analyze the effect of numerical parameters on the performance of GA based simulation ...
Artificial neural network modeling and simulation of in-vitro nanoparticle-cell interactions
(American Scientific Publishers, 2014)
In this research a prediction model for the cellular uptake efficiency of nanoparticles (NPs), which is the rate that NPs adhere to a cell surface or enter a cell, is investigated via an artificial neural network (ANN) ...
A data-level parallel linear-quadratic penalty algorithm for multicommodity network flows
(Association for Computing Machinery, 1994)
We describe the development of a data-level, massively parallel software system for the solution of multicommodity network flow problems. Using a smooth linear-quadratic penalty (LQP) algorithm we transform the multicommodity ...
Single machine earliness-tardiness scheduling problems using the equal-slack rule
(Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., 1994)
The purpose of this paper is to analyze a special case of the non-pre-emptive single machine scheduling problem where the distinct due dates for each job are related to processing times according to the Equal-Slack rule. ...
Investments viewed as growth processes
(Taylor & Francis, 1995)
For modeling investment decision situations, we present a mathematical basis that views the cash flow sequences as growth processes. We first emphasize the pedagogical value of the basic model by showing that all traditionally ...
Energy management in microgrids with plug-in electric vehicles, distributed energy resources and smart home appliances
(Springer, Singapore, 2015)
Smart Grid is transforming the way energy is being generated and distributed today, leading to the development of environment-friendly, economic and efficient technologies such as plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), distributed ...
