  • Willemain, Thomas R.; Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Operations Research Center (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1978)
  • McCormick, Tyler H.; Rudin, Cynthia; Madigan, David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 2011-10-25)
  • Freund, Robert M.; Ordóñez, Fernando; Toh, Kim Chuan (2005-03-04)
    We study four measures of problem instance behavior that might account for the observed differences in interior-point method (IPM) iterations when these methods are used to solve semidefinite programming (SDP) problem ...
  • Bradwick, Matthew E. (Matthew Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis considers approaches to influencing population opinions during counterinsurgency efforts in Afghanistan. A discrete time, agent-based threshold model is developed to analyze the propagation of beliefs in the ...
  • Wein, Lawrence M.; Chevalier, Philippe B. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1989-12)
    We define a job-shop scheduling problem with three dynamic decisions: assigning duedates to exogenously arriving jobs, releasing jobs from a backlog to the shop floor, and sequencing jobs at each workstation in the shop. ...
  • Gupta, Shobhit (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Buyout options allow bidders to instantly purchase at a specified price an item listed for sale through an online auction. A temporary buyout option disappears once a regular bid above the reserve price is made, while a ...
  • Araque, Jésus Rafael; Hall, Leslie A.; Magnanti, Thomas L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1990-11)
    We study the polyhedral structure of two related core combinatorial problems: the subtree cardinalityconstrained minimal spanning tree problem and the identical customer vehicle routing problem. For each of these problems, ...
  • Sivaraman, Raghavendran (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    We study three capacity expansion problems in contemporary long distance telecommunication networks. The first two problems, motivated by a major long distance provider, address capacity expansion in national hybrid long ...
  • Chaiwanon, Wongsakorn (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Poor management of the patient flow in intensive care units (ICUs) causes service rejections and presents significant challenges from the standpoint of capacity planning and management in ICUs. This thesis reports on the ...
  • Fearing, Douglas (Douglas Stephen) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    In this thesis, we develop multi-resource integer optimization formulations for coordinating Traffic Flow Management (TFM) programs with equity considerations. Our multi-resource approaches ignore aircraft connectivity ...
  • Goemans, Michel X.; Myung, Young-soo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1991-05)
    We present some existing and some new formulations for the Steiner tree and Steiner arborescence problems. We show the equivalence of many of these formulations. In particular, we establish the equivalence between the ...
  • Williams, Mark J. (Mark John) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis, we develop methods to address airlift scheduling, and in particular the problem of scheduling military aircraft capacity to meet ad hoc demand. Network optimization methods typically applied to scheduling ...
  • Magnanti, Thomas L.; Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Operations Research Center (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1981)
  • Stratila, Dan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In the first part, we study the problem of minimizing a separable concave function over a polyhedron. We assume the concave functions are nonnegative nondecreasing on R+, and the polyhedron is in RI' (these assumptions can ...
  • Safwat, K. N. A.; Magnanti, Thomas L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1982-03)
    We introduce a transportation equilibrium model that simultaneously predicts trip generation, trip distribution, modal split, and traffic assignment by algorithms that are guaranteed to converge to an equilibrium and are ...
  • Tsitsiklis, John N.; Luo, Zhi-Quan; Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Operations Research Center (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1986)
  • Croxton, Keely L.; Gendon, Bernard; Magnanti, Thomas L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 2002-07)
    We study a generic minimization problem with separable non-convex piecewise linear costs, showing that the linear programming (LP) relaxation of three textbook mixed integer programming formulations each approximates the ...
  • Graves, Stephen C.; Keilson, Julian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1978-07)
    This paper considers a one-product, one-machine production/inventory probelm. Demand requests for the product are governed by a Poisson process with demand size being an exponential random variable. The production facility ...
  • Kluberg, Lionel J. (Lionel Jonathan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The thesis investigates the costs and benefits of free competition as opposed to central regulation to coordinate the incentives of various participants in a market. The overarching goal of the thesis is to decide whether ...
  • Sood, Anshul, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Pricing of a perishable product over a multi-period time horizon is a challenging problem under an oligopolistic market framework. We propose and study a model for multi-period pricing in an oligopolistic market for a ...
