On the S-procedure and some variants
We give a concise review and extension of S-procedure that is an instrumental tool in control theory and robust optimization analysis. We also discuss the approximate S-Lemma as well as its applications in robust optimization.
Relationships between prosodic and musical meters in the Beste form of classical Turkish music
(University of Texas Press Journals Division, 2005)
Classical Turkish music is essentially vocal in nature, and a large portion of its lyrics is taken from Ottoman divân literature. The primary prosodic meter used in divân is arûz, whereas the musical meter utilized in ...
On pseudo symmetric monomial curves
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-12-15)
We study monomial curves, toric ideals and monomial algebras associated to 4-generated pseudo symmetric numerical semigroups. Namely, we determine indispensable binomials of these toric ideals, give a characterization ...
A stochastic programming approach for Shelter location and evacuation planning
(EDP Sciences, 2018-09-19)
Shelter location and traffic allocation decisions are critical for an efficient evacuation plan. In this study, we propose a scenario-based two-stage stochastic evacuation planning model that optimally locates shelter sites ...
Centralized and decentralized management of groundwater with multiple users
In this work, we investigate two groundwater inventory management schemes with multiple users in a dynamic game-theoretic structure: (i) under the centralized management scheme, users are allowed to pump water from a common ...
Energy based investigation of process parameters while drilling carbon fiber reinforced polymers
(Elsevier B.V., 2016)
Carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRPs) are widely used in the aerospace industry due to their light weight, high strength, and low thermal conductivity. Drilling is a critical process that affects the quality of CFRP ...
A bilevel uncapacitated location/pricing problem with Hotelling access costs in one-dimensional space
(International Conference on Information Systems, Logistics and Supply Chain, 2016)
We formulate a spatial pricing problem as bilevel non-capacitated location: a leader first decides which facilities to open and sets service prices taking competing offers into account; then, customers make individual ...
Online Contextual Influence Maximization in social networks
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2017)
In this paper, we propose the Online Contextual Influence Maximization Problem (OCIMP). In OCIMP, the learner faces a series of epochs in each of which a different influence campaign is run to promote a certain product in ...
Mixed-model assembly line sequencing using beam search
(Taylor & Francis, 2007)
In today's manufacturing environments, companies have to produce a large variety of products in small quantities on a single assembly line. In this paper, we use a beam search (BS) approach to solve the model-sequencing ...
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 ...
