#### An application of an optimal behaviour of the greedy solution in number theory

(Akademiai Kiado Rt., 1993)

Let a1, a2, ..., an be relative prime positive integers. The Frobenius problem is to determine the greatest integer not belonging to the set {Σj=1 najxj :x∈Z+ n}. The Frobenius problem belongs to the combinatorial number ...

#### Experimental investigation of an FMS due-date scheduling problem: Evaluation of machine and AGV scheduling rules

(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1993)

Although extensive research has been conducted to solve design and operational problems of automated manufacturing systems, many of the problems still remain unsolved. This article investigates the scheduling problems of ...

#### A genuinely polynomial primal simplex algorithm for the assignment problem

(Elsevier, 1993)

We present a primal simplex algorithm that solves the assignment problem in 1 2n(n+3)-4 pivots. Starting with a problem of size 1, we sequentially solve problems of size 2,3,4,...,n. The algorithm utilizes degeneracy by ...

#### New insights on the single machine total tardiness problem

(Palgrave Macmillan, 1997)

Virtually all algorithmic studies on the single machine total tardiness problem use Emmons' theorems that establish precedence relations between job pairs. In this paper, we investigate these theorems with a geometric ...

#### Part-machine grouping using a multi-objective cluster analysis

(1996)

In the existing literature, the part-family formation problem is handled either by the coding systems or the cluster analysis. In this study, we propose a new method that will consider both design and manufacturing attributes ...

#### 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 ...

#### A comparative study of computational procedures for the resource constrained project scheduling problem

(Elsevier, 1994)

Performance of two new integer programming based heuristics together with some special purpose algorithms for project scheduling are tested from a computational point of view. The objective of the study is to compare the ...

#### Nonparametric estimation of hazard functions and their derivatives under truncation model

(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1993)

Nonparametric kernel estimators for hazard functions and their derivatives are considered under the random left truncation model. The estimator is of the form of sum of identically distributed but dependent random variables. ...

#### Newton's method for linear inequality systems

(Elsevier, 1998)

We describe a modified Newton type algorithm for the solution of linear inequality systems in the sense of minimizing the ℓ2 norm of infeasibilities. Finite termination is proved, and numerical results are given. © 1998 ...

#### Incorporating just-in-time into a decision support system environment

(Elsevier BV, 1991)

In this paper, a Decision Support System is proposed for a Just-In-Time production system. The Decision Support System includes three components: database, model base, and interface. The database contains the predefined ...
