  • Wang, Qian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Transportation procurement is one of the most critical sourcing decisions to be made in many companies. This thesis addresses a real-life industrial problem of creating package bids for a company's transportation procurement ...
  • Birge, Jonathan R. (Jonathan Richards) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We solve the periodic boundary value problem for a mode-locked laser cavity using a specially preconditioned matrix-implicit Newton-Krylov solver. Solutions are obtained at least an order of magnitude faster than with ...
  • Sun, Wei, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The price of anarchy quantifies the inefficiency that occurs in the total system objective in the user optimization as compared to the system optimization setting. It is well known that this inefficiency occurs due to lack ...
  • Sinchaisri, Wichinpong (Wichinpong Park) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Quality is one of the most important factors behind a decision to purchase any product. Consumers have long assumed that price and quality are highly correlated, and that as the price of a product increases, its quality ...
  • Xiong, Ying, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Although most racers are good at controlling their cars, world champions are always talented at choosing the right racing line while others mostly fail to do that. Optimal racing line selection is a critical problem in car ...
  • Banerjee, Nirjhar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    We intend to discuss in detail two well known geometrical probability problems. The first one deals with finding the probability that a random triangle is obtuse in nature. We initially discuss the various ways of choosing ...
  • Ma, Jing, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, we study primal solutions for general optimization problems. In particular, we employ the subgradient method to solve the Lagrangian dual of a convex constrained problem, and use a primal-averaging scheme ...
  • Tan Yong Kwang, Alex (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis, we solve the 2nd order wave equation, which is hyperbolic and linear in nature, to determine the pressure distribution for a one-dimensional seismic problem with smooth initial pressure and rate of pressure ...
  • Garlapati, Revanth Reddy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The main aim of the project is to solve the BGK model of the Knudsen parameterized Boltzmann equation which is 1-d with respect to both space and velocity. In order to solve the Boltzmann equation, we first transform the ...
  • Vidal Codina, Ferran (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Recently there has been a growing interest in quantifying the effects of random inputs in the solution of partial differential equations that arise in a number of areas, including fluid mechanics, elasticity, and wave ...
  • Wan, Zhong Yi, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In this thesis work, we formulate a reduced-order data-driven strategy for the efficient probabilistic forecast of complex high-dimensional dynamical systems for which data-streams are available. The first step of this ...
  • Li, Meng, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Many therapeutically useful and critically important drugs are inhibitors of particular enzymes in a signaling pathway. The efficiency with which an inhibitor inactivates its target can be characterized by the binding ...
  • Hogstrom, Larson J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Understanding the profiles of information acquisition during DNA sequencing experiments is critical to the design and implementation of large-scale studies in medical and population genetics. One known technical challenge ...
  • Feppon, Florian (Florian Jeremy) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    This work focuses on developing theory and methodologies for the analysis of material transport in stochastic fluid flows. In a first part, two dominant classes of techniques for extracting Lagrangian Coherent Structures ...
  • Kudo, Jun, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The ability to achieve accurate predictions of turbulent flow over arbitrarily complex geometries proves critical in the advancement of aerospace design. However, quantitatively accurate results from modern Computational ...
  • Su, Hua, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis applies recent advances in the field of robust optimization to the optimal control of multiclass queueing networks. We develop models that take into account the uncertainty of interarrival and service time in ...
  • Chen, Si, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This research aims to provide tractable approaches to price options using robust optimization. The pricing problem is reduced to a problem of identifying the replicating portfolio which minimizes the worst case arbitrage ...
  • Lim, Lui Cheng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Forest operations planning is a complex decision process which considers multiple objectives on the strategic, tactical and operational horizons. Decisions such as where to harvest and in what order over different time ...
  • Lu, Yun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    We address the problem of designing a transportation network in the presence of demand uncertainty, multiple origin-destination pairs and a budget constraint for the overall construction cost, under the behavioral assumption ...
  • Lui, Ho Man (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis we investigate the ability of the Runge-Kutta Discontinuous Galerkin (RKDG) method to provide accurate and efficient solutions of the Boltzmann equation. Solutions of the Boltzmann equation are desirable in ...
