  • Siow, Christopher (Christopher Shun Yi) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis, we investigate the batch sizing problem for a custom-job production facility. More specifically, given a production system that has been assigned several different types of custom jobs, we try to derive ...
  • Shah, Premal (Premal Y.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis we study three problems related to financial modeling. First, we study the problem of pricing Employee Stock Options (ESOs) from the point of view of the issuing company. Since an employee cannot trade or ...
  • Goemans, Michel X. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1990-11)
    We consider the analysis of linear programming (LP) relaxations for a class of connectivity problems. The central problem in the class is the survivable network design problem - the problem of designing a minimum cost ...
  • Britan, Gabriel R.; Magnanti, Thomas L.; Yanasse, Horacio H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1982-03)
    In this paper we provide worst case error bounds for several heuristics for the uncapacitated dynamic lot size problem. We propose two managerially oriented procedures and show that they have a relative worst case error ...

  • Relyea, Stephen L. (Stephen Lawrence) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Since chemotherapy began as a treatment for cancer in the 1940s, cancer drug development has become a multi-billion dollar industry. Combination chemotherapy remains the leading treatment for advanced cancers, and cancer ...
  • Epstein, Christina (Christina Lynn) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Hypertension is a major public health issue worldwide, affecting more than a third of the adult population and increasing the risk of myocardial infarction, heart failure, stroke, and kidney disease. Current clinical ...
  • Kung, Jerry Lai (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Health care expenditures in the United States have been increasing at unsustainable rates for more than thirty years with no signs of abating. Decisions to accept or reject deceased-donor kidneys offered to patients on the ...
  • Marks, Christopher E. (Christopher Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    This thesis presents and evaluates methods for searching and analyzing social media data in order to improve situational awareness. We begin by proposing a method for network vertex search that looks for the target vertex ...
  • Fagnan, David Erik (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Financing drug development has a particular set of challenges including long development times, high chance of failure, significant market valuation uncertainty, and high costs of development. The earliest stages of ...
  • Silberholz, John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Cancer is a leading cause of death both in the United States and worldwide. In this thesis we use machine learning and optimization to identify effective treatments for advanced cancers and to identify effective screening ...
  • Johnson, Kris (Kris Dianne) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Online markets are becoming increasingly important in today's world as more people gain access to the internet. Furthermore, the explosion of data that is collected via these online markets provides us with new opportunities ...
  • Ramakrishnan, V. S.; Shapiro, Jeremy F., 1939- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1991-08)
    A new method for multi-objective optimization of linear and mixed programs based on Lagrange multiplier methods is developed. The method resembles, but is distinct from, objective function weighting and goal programming ...

  • Harris, William Ray (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis considers the problem of detecting anomalies in performance data for unmanned underwater vehicles(UUVs). UUVs collect a tremendous amount of data, which operators are required to analyze between missions to ...
  • Sahyoun, Alexandre Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In the face of large increases in the number of passengers and flights, busy airports worldwide have been trying to optimize operating efficiency and throughput and minimize congestion on a daily basis. In the case of ...
