  • Freund, Robert M.; Grigas, Paul; Mazumder, Rahul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 2014-03-14)
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Fast, Shannon M. (Shannon Marie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Epidemic trajectories and associated social responses vary widely between populations, with severe reactions sometimes observed. When confronted with fatal or novel pathogens, people exhibit a variety of behaviors from ...
  • Paynter, Jonathan L. (Jonathan Lawrence) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    A feature of many conflicts is the presence of a border that separates an area of on-going military operations from an area that the enemy can use permissively. This thesis considers analytic techniques for planning military ...
  • Jernigan, Nicholas R. (Nicholas Richard) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this paper we present a mixed integer optimization framework for modeling the shipment of goods between origin destination (O-D) pairs by vehicles of different types over a time-space network. The output of the model ...
  • Gupta, Vishal, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The last decade has seen an explosion in the availability of data. In this thesis, we propose new techniques to leverage these data to tractably model uncertainty and behavior. Specifically, this thesis consists of three ...
  • Anderson, Ross Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis considers problems in two areas in the healthcare operations: Kidney Paired Donation (KPD) and scheduling medical residents in hospitals. In both areas, we explore the implications of policy change through high ...
  • Kim, Louis Y. (Louis Yongchul) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In the event of a pandemic influenza outbreak, such as the 2009-2010 H1N1 "Swine Flu" episode, it is crucial to effectively allocate limited resources in order to minimize the casualties. Design of effective resource ...
  • Men, Han; Freund, Robert M.; Nguyen, Ngoc C.; Saa-Seoane, Joel; Peraire, Jaime (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 2013-07-22)
  • Freund, Robert M.; Grigas, Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 2013-07-10)
  • Bandi, Chaithanya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Modern probability theory, whose foundation is based on the axioms set forth by Kolmogorov, is currently the major tool for performance analysis in stochastic systems. While it offers insights in understanding such systems, ...
  • Bunting, Zachary S. (Zachary Shane) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    We investigate two distinct problems in military radio networking. In the first problem, we study a mobile airborne multi-hop wireless network. The mobility of the nodes leads to dynamic link capacities requiring changes ...
  • Keller, Philipp W. (Philipp Wilhelm), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    We consider a retailer offering an assortment of differentiated substitutable products to price-sensitive customers. Prices are chosen to maximize profit, subject to inventory/ capacity constraints, as well as more general ...
  • 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 ...
  • Kessler, John M. (John Michael) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    As some of the most technically complex systems in the world, United States fighter aircraft require a complex logistics system to sustain their reliable operation and ensure that the day-to-day Air Force missions can be ...
  • Robinson, Eric John, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    collect information. This may include taking pictures of the ground, gathering infrared photos, taking atmospheric pressure measurements, or any conceivable form of data collection. Often these separate organizations have ...
  • Uichanco, Joline Ann Villaranda (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, we study data-driven decision making in operation management contexts, with a focus on both theoretical and practical aspects. The first part of the thesis analyzes the well-known newsvendor model but under ...
  • O'Hair, Allison Kelly (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, we present a system to make personalized lifestyle and health decisions for diabetes management, as well as for general health and diet management. In particular, we address the following components of the ...
  • Lu, Xin, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Operations Research Center (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, we study online optimization problems in routing and allocation applications. Online problems are problems where information is revealed incrementally, and decisions must be made before all information is ...
