A GIS ‐ based framework for hazardous materials transport risk assessment
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, 2001)
This article presents a methodology for assessment of the hazardous materials transport risk in a multicommodity, multiple origin – destination setting. The proposed risk assessment methodology was integrated with a ...
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 ...
A simple duality proof in convex quadratic programming with a quadratic constraint, and some applications
In this paper a simple derivation of duality is presented for convex quadratic programs with a convex quadratic constraint. This problem arises in a number of applications including trust region subproblems of nonlinear ...
Integrated capacity and inventory management with capacity acquisition lead times
We model a make-to-stock production system that utilizes permanent and contingent capacity to meet non-stationary stochastic demand, where a constant lead time is associated with the acquisition of contingent capacity. We ...
Some Markovian Queuing Retrial Systems under light-traffic conditions
(Kluwer Academic Publishers-Plenum Publishers, 2001)
The asymptotic behavior of the time of the first loss of a demand in Markovian single-channel and multichannel queuing retrial systems with a finite buffer and an external Markovian environment is analyzed. Two cases are ...
On pricing of perishable assets with menu costs
We consider dynamic pricing of perishable assets in the presence of price-sensitive renewal demand processes. Unlike the existing works in the literature, we explicitly incorporate non-negligible price change costs which ...
İnternet yasakları ve hukuk

Variance reduction techniques: experimental comparison and analysis for single systems
(Taylor & Francis, 2008)
We provide a thorough analysis of the effectiveness of different Variance Reduction Techniques (VRTs). We consider both stand-alone and combined applications of two input techniques, Antithetic Variates (AV) and Latin ...
Manufacturer's mixed pallet design problem
We study a problem faced by a major beverage producer. The company produces and distributes several brands to various customers from its regional distributors. For some of these brands, most customers do not have enough ...
Backtracking and exchange of information: methods to enhance a beam search algorithm for assembly line scheduling
Beam search (BS) is used as a heuristic to solve various combinatorial optimization problems, ranging from scheduling to assembly line balancing. In this paper, we develop a backtracking and an exchange-of-information (EOI) ...
