  • Jeffreys, Christopher G. (Christopher Grey), 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Stem (cell research is one of the most promising and cutting-edge fields i the miedical sciences. It is believed that this innovative research will lead to life-saving treatments in the coming years. As part of their work, ...
  • Wong, Richard T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1976-05)
    This report is a survey of the design of various types of networks that frequently occur in the study of transportation and communication problems. The report contains a general framework which facilitates comparisons ...
  • Wong, Richard T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1978-08)
    Network design problems arise in many different application areas such as air freight, highway traffic, and communication systems. The intention of this survey is to present a coherent unified view of a number of papers ...
  • Golovin, Jonathan, (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1973)
  • Cohen, Joseph J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1973-09)
    The warehouse location problem has assumed numerous formulations, and solutions have been devised using a variety of mathematical techniques. The development of this effort is examined and relevant models presented for evaluation.
  • Goemans, Michel X.; Bertsimas, Dimitris J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1990-06)
    We consider the survivable network design problem - the problem of designing, at minimum cost, a network with edge-connectivity requirements. As special cases, this problem encompasses the Steiner tree problem, the traveling ...

  • Parandehgheibi, Marzieh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    We consider the problem of protection in multilayer networks. In single-layer net- works, a pair of disjoint paths can be used to provide protection for a source-destination pair. However, this approach cannot be directly ...
  • Wong, Richard T.; Mireault, Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1984)
  • Alighanbari, Mehdi, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    For many vehicles, obstacles, and targets, coordination of a fleet of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is a very complicated optimization problem, and the computation time typically increases very rapidly with the problem ...

  • Freund, Robert M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1989-04)
    This paper examines the theoretical efficiency of solving a standard-form linear program by solving a sequence of shifted-barrier problems of the form minimize cTx - n (xj + ehj) j.,1 x s.t. Ax = b , x + e h > , for a given ...

  • Bompadre, Agustín (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In this thesis we study different combinatorial optimization problems. These problems arise in many practical settings where there is a need for finding good solutions fast. The first class of problems we study are vehicle ...
  • Hanowsky, Michael John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    A prototype tool was developed to support the planning of ground delay programs (GDPs) under uncertainty. Planned hours in advance, GDPs are subject to significant arrival capacity uncertainty, which reduces their efficacy ...
  • Eckels, Timothy J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1979-12)
    A potentially powerful design for the evaluation of public programs is one which combines an assessment of program processes with an experimentally oriented analysis of program outcomes. Relatively little has been written, ...
