  • Talnikar, Chaitanya Anil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Design optimization with high-fidelity turbulent flow simulations can be challenging due to noisy and expensive objective function evaluations. The noise decays slowly as computation cost increases, therefore is significant ...
  • Foo, Ming Qing (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis examines two problems concerning the secure and reliable operation of the electric power grid. The first part studies the distributed operation of the electric power grid using the power flow problem, which is ...
  • Tseranidis, Stavros (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis explores the use of approximation algorithms, sometimes called surrogate modelling, in the early-stage design of structures. The use of approximation models to evaluate design performance scores rapidly could ...
  • Liu, Jeffrey, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    We consider the problem of estimating individual and social value of information in routing games. We propose a Bayesian congestion game that accounts for the heterogeneity in the commuters' access to information about ...
  • Li, Rongsha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Today, organizations are generating large volumes of data. However, the challenge of extracting valuable information from the data has been a large and long-standing problem. Here, we address the problem of quantifying ...
