  • Rossillon, Kevin Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In this thesis, we introduce and analyze models for air asset scheduling within a military theater. Specifically, we seek to create models that generate aircraft-specific schedules for Air Tasking Orders (ATOs) within a ...
  • Rhee, Donguk (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    A fully polynomial time approximation scheme (FPTAS) is an algorithm that returns ... -optimal solution to a maximization problem of size n, which runs in polynomial time in both ... We develop faster FPTASs for several ...
  • Borjian Boroujeni, Setareh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    With the continuous growth in international container shipping, many container terminals in maritime ports face congestion, particularly during peak hours of service, and when there is limited space in the storage area. ...
  • Schonfeld, Daniel (Daniel Ryan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Despite groundbreaking technology and revised operating procedures designed to improve the safety of air travel, numerous aviation accidents still occur every year. According to a recent report by the FAA's Aviation Weather ...
  • Sheth, Mallory (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Predicting outcomes for critically ill patients is a topic of considerable interest. The most widely used models utilize data from early in a patient's stay to predict risk of death. While research has shown that use of ...
  • Rizzo, Ludovica (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In the era of Big Data, online retailers have access to a large amount of data about their customers. This data can include demographic information, shopping carts, transactions and browsing history. In the last decade, ...
  • Hanley, Zebulon James (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis expands on models that predict delays within the National Airspace System (NAS) in the United States. We propose a new method to predict the expected behavior of the NAS throughout the course of an entire day ...
  • Lepird, John R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Developed in the 1970's and 1980's, the Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) is the last safety net to prevent an aircraft mid-air collision. Although TCAS has been historically very effective, TCAS logic ...
  • 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 ...
  • Testa, Mariapaola (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Frost, Emily Anne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, I design and implement a novel method of schedule and path selection between predetermined waypoints for unmanned underwater vehicles under uncertainty. The problem is first formulated as a mixed-integer ...
  • Culver, David M. (David Martin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis considers the tactical reconnaissance asset allocation problem in military operations. Specifically this thesis presents methods to optimize, under uncertain conditions, tactical reconnaissance asset allocation ...
  • 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 ...
