Radio communications interdiction problem
(Bilkent University, 2020-02)
Tactical communications have always played a pivotal role in maintaining eﬀective command and control of troops operating in hostile, extremely fragile and dynamic battleﬁeld environments. Radio communications, in particular, ...
Essays on scheduling with controllable processing times in flexible manufacturing systems
(Bilkent University, 2003)
Time/cost trade-offs in machine scheduling with controllable processing times
(Bilkent University, 2008)
Processing time controllability is a critical aspect in scheduling decisions since most of the scheduling practice in industry allows controlling processing times. A very well known example is the computer numerically ...
Production decisions with convex costs and carbon emission constraints
(Bilkent University, 2016-03)
In this thesis, di erent variants of the production planning problem are considered. We rst study an uncapacitated deterministic lot sizing model with a nonlinear convex production cost function. The nonlinearity and ...
Optimization of transportation requirements in the deployment of military units
(Bilkent University, 2005)
We study the deployment planning problem (DPP) that may roughly be defined as the problem of the planning of the physical movement of military units, stationed at geographically dispersed locations, from their home ...
Essays on bilateral trade with discrete types
(Bilkent University, 2019-11)
Bilateral trade is probably the most common market interaction problem and can be considered as the simplest form of two sided markets where a seller and a buyer bargain over an indivisible object subject to incomplete ...
Concepts and analysis in facility location under uncertainty : applications to 1-median problem
(Bilkent University, 2001-08)
Order quantity and pricing decisions in linear cost inventory systems
(Bilkent University, 1992)
The primary concern of this study is to reveal the fundamental characteristics of the linear cost inventory model where price is a decision variable in addition to procurement quantity. In this context, the optimal ...
Algorithms for linear and convex feasibility problems: A brief study of iterative projection, localization and subgradient methods
(Bilkent University, 1998)
Several algorithms for the feasibility problem are investigated. For linear systems, a number of different block projections approaches have been implemented and compared. The parallel algorithm of Yang and Murty is ...
Generating robust and stable machine schedules from a proactive standpoint
(Bilkent University, 2009)
In practice, scheduling systems are subject to considerable uncertainty in highly dynamic operating environments. The ability to cope with uncertainty in the scheduling process is becoming an increasingly important issue. ...
