#### Asymptotic analysis of nonhomogenous hierarchical Markov processes and applications in models of the consolidation of queueing systems

(American Mathematical Society, 1998)

Limit theorems for nonhomogenous in time hierarchical Markov processes admitting the consolidation of states are studied. Noiton of quasi-Markov processes is introduced. The theorem on asymptotic consolidation in the class ...

#### A new finite continuation algorithm for linear programming

(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 1996)

We describe a new finite continuation algorithm for linear programming. The dual of the linear programming problem with unit lower and upper bounds is formulated as an f\ minimization problem augmented with the addition ...

#### 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 ...

#### On the consistency of a two-sample matching test

(Taylor & Francis, 1996)

Let {X k} and {Y k}, 1 ≤ k ≤n be the order statistics of independent random samples from continuous distribution function F and G respectively. To test the null hypothesis H 0 : G = F, known, against the alternative H 1 : ...

#### 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 ...

#### Facility location and capacity acquisition: an integrated approach

(John Wiley & Sons, 1995)

The facility location and capacity acquisition decisions are intertwined, especially within the international context where capacity acquisition costs are location dependent. A review of the relevant literature however, ...

#### The parallel surrogate constraint approach to the linear feasibility problem

(Springer, 1996)

The linear feasibility problem arises in several areas of applied mathematics and medical science, in several forms of image reconstruction problems. The surrogate constraint algorithm of Yang and Murty for the linear ...

#### Beam search based algorithm for scheduling machines and AGVs in an FMS

(Institute for Industrial Engineers, 1993)

This paper presents a beam search based scheduling algorithm for a random FMS. The proposed algorithm considers finite buffer capacity, routing and sequence flexibilities and generates machine and AGV schedules in varying ...

#### Integrated lot sizing and tool management in automated manufacturing systems

(IIE, 1997)

We propose a new algorithm to solve lot sizing, tool allocation and machining conditions optimization problems simultaneously to minimize total production cost in a CNC environment. Most of the existing lot sizing and tool ...
