Simulation optimization: a comprehensive review on theory and applications
(Taylor & Francis, 2004)
For several decades, simulation has been used as a descriptive tool by the operations research community in the modeling and analysis of a wide variety of complex real systems. With recent developments in simulation ...
A note on "continuous review perishable inventory systems: models and heuristics"
In a recent paper, Lian and Liu (2001) consider a continuous review perishable inventory model with renewal arrivals, batch demands and zero lead times. However, the main analytical result they provide holds only for some ...
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 ...
The single-assignment hub covering problem: models and linearizations
(Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., 2003)
We study the hub covering problem which, so far, has remained one of the unstudied hub location problems in the literature. We give a combinatorial and a new integer programming formulation of the hub covering problem ...
