The latest arrival hub location problem
(Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORM), 2001)
The traditionally studied hub location problems in the literature pay attention to flight times but not to transient times spent at hubs for unloading, loading, and sorting operations. The transient times may constitute a ...
Balancing of U-type assembly systems using simulated annealing
(Taylor & Francis, 2001)
The paper presents a new simulated annealing (SA)-based algorithm for the assembly line-balancing problem with a U-type con®guration. The proposed algorithm employs an intelligent mechanism to search a large solution space. ...
A general theory on spectral properties of state-homogeneous finite-state quasi-birth-death processes
In this paper a spectral theory pertaining to Quasi-Birth–Death Processes (QBDs) is presented. The QBD, which is a generalization of the birth–death process, is a powerful tool that can be utilized in modeling many stochastic ...
