  • Lohatepanont, Manoj, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Webb, Matthew Robert (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Combining social media posts with known user locations can lead to unique insights with applications ranging from tracking diffusion of sentiment to earthquake detection. One approach used to determine a user's home location ...
  • Rajagopalan, Krishnan, S.M. Sloan School of Management (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    An agent wants to form a connection with a predetermined set of target users over social media. Because forming a connection is known as "following" in social networks such as Twitter, we refer to this as the follow-back ...
  • Hickman, Randal E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Autonomous vehicles often operate in environments with imperfect information. This thesis addresses the case of a system of autonomous vehicles and sensors attempting to intercept a moving object of interest that arrives ...
  • Saroufim, Carl Elie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In the context of a world flooded with data, the Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding. This thesis considers the problem of applying IoT technology to the reduction of costs in the iron ore mining industry, to compensate ...
  • Varol, Nebibe, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Most of the logistics systems involve a multi-level distribution system structure due to value added by a multi-level configuration. Interactions of these levels, i.e. echelons, should be considered while making strategic ...
  • Chhaochhria, Pallav (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    A large online retailer strategically stocks inventory for SKUs with low demand. The motivations are to provide a wide range of selections and faster customer fulfillment service. We assume the online retailer has the ...
  • Ye, Kelly (Kelly Yunqing) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We consider the joint pricing and inventory decision problem for a single retailer who orders, stocks and sells multiple products. The products are competitive in nature, e.g., these maybe similar products from multiple ...
  • Miller, John V. (John Vaala) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    With recent advances in research and technology, autonomous surface vessel capabilities have steadily increased. These autonomous surface vessel technologies enable missions and tasks to be performed without the direction ...
  • Timmers, Kendell M. (Kendell MacQueen), 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    There is a great need among educators for a way to quickly assign teams in large or distance learning classrooms in a manner superior to random assignment or student self-selection. Forming teams based on knowledge of ...
  • Quinteros, Martin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis we study modifications of the classical Mean-Variance Portfolio Optimization model. Our objective is to identify an optimal subset of assets from all available assets to maximize the expected return while ...
  • Schorr, Raphael Avram, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • Sarmadi, Sepehr, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Statistics show that airline flight delays and cancellations have increased continuously over the period from 1995 to 2000. During the same period, customer dissatisfaction and complaints have followed a similar, even more ...

    In the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) area, the production of numerical solid waste (MI\SW) increased by 32% between 1990 and 2011, exceeding 660 million tonnes in 2011; the world-wide ...
  • Yang, Lang, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Increases in car ownership and usage have resulted in serious traffic congestion problems in many large cities worldwide. Innovative travel modes and services can play an important role in improving the efficiency and ...
  • Evans, Jane A. (Jane Amanda) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    With the globalization of culture and economic trade, it is increasingly important not only to detect outbreaks of infectious disease early, but also to anticipate the social response to the disease. In this thesis, we use ...
  • Messmacher, Eduardo B. (Eduardo Bernhart), 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Organizations perform work essentially through operations and projects. The characteristics of projects makes them extremely difficult to manage: their non repetitive nature discards the trial and error learning, while ...
  • Koepke, Corbin G. (Corbin Gene), 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The United States Air Force's Air Mobility Command is responsible for creating a schedule and executing that schedule for a large-scale air mobility network that encompasses different mission areas. One of the mission areas ...
