  • 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 ...
  • Anoun, Amine (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Economically motivated adulteration of imported food poses a serious threat to public health, and has contributed to several poisoning incidents in the past few years in the U.S. [1]. Prevention is achieved by sampling ...
  • 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)
    Most air traffic delay measures assess delays relative to schedule. Over the past decades, however, airline schedules have been adjusted to take into account airspace congestion and yield better on-time performance. In ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Howard, Nicholas J. (Nicholas Jacob) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis considers the problem of optimally influencing social networks in Afghanistan as part of ongoing counterinsurgency efforts. The social network is analyzed using a discrete time agent based model. Each agent has ...
  • Mostagir, Mohamed (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This thesis is divided into two parts sharing the common theme of fully polynomial time approximation schemes. In the first part, we introduce a generic approach for devising fully polynomial time approximation schemes for ...
