  • 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 ...
  • Barth, Christopher D. (Christopher Daniel), 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    In this thesis, we create a comprehensive model and efficient solution technique for generating air operations plans. Previous air operations models have fallen short in at least one of the following areas: routing. real-time ...
  • Weber, Theophane (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    We study the transient dynamics of a partially observed, infinite server queue fed with a Poisson arrival process whose controlled rate is changed at discrete points in time. More specifically, we define a state that ...
  • Wroten, Matthew Christian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Planners of military air and space operations in a battlefield environment seek to allocate resources against targets in a way that best achieves the objectives of the commander. In future conflicts, the presence of new ...
  • 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 ...
  • Sursock, Jean-Paul, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    We review and extend two important empirical financial studies: Fama and MacBeth [1973] and Fama and French [1992]. Fama and MacBeth [1973] sort stocks on the New York Stock Exchange into 20 portfolios based on their market ...
  • Le Guen, Thibault (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis, we develop a pricing strategy that enables a firm to learn the behavior of its customers as well as optimize its profit in a monopolistic setting. The single product case as well as the multi product case ...
  • Snyder, Ashley M. (Ashley Marie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Data mining is a versatile and expanding field of study. We show the applications and uses of a variety of techniques in two very different realms: Emergency department (ED) length of stay prediction and visual analytics. ...
  • Flietstra, Bryan C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Variations in training and individual doctor's listening skills make diagnosing a patient via stethoscope based auscultation problematic. Doctors have now turned to more advanced devices such as x-rays and computed tomography ...
  • Chandler, Lincoln J., 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Given the desire to create interactive websites that effectively engage and instruct medical professionals, an alternative model for online case studies was developed. The resulting application presents the user with a ...
  • 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 ...
  • Krishnan, Niranjan, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Rajagopalan, Shreevatsa (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The question of computing average of numbers present at nodes in a network in a distributed manner using gossip or message-passing algorithms has been of great recent interest across disciplines -- algorithms, control and ...
  • Martin, Kiel M. (Kiel Michael) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, we analyze intratheater airlift operations, and propose methods to improve the planning process. The United States Air Mobility Command is responsible for the air component of the world wide U.S. military ...
  • 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 ...
  • Amonlirdviman, Kevin, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    This thesis presents a Markov chain model of the transmission of financial crises. Using bilateral trade data and a measure of exchange market pressure, it develops a method to determine a set of transition probabilities ...
  • 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 ...
  • El Alj, Yasmine, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Guo, Jingqiang Charles (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The growth of Low Fare Carriers (LFCs) has encouraged many airlines to remove fare restrictions (such as advance purchase requirements and Saturday-night stays) on many of their fare class products, leading to the ...
  • Guo, Kenrick (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis, we examine some puzzles in finance from an evolutionary perspective. We first provide a literature review of evolutionary psychology, and discuss three main findings; the frequentist hypothesis, applications ...
