  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Zhou, Xinfeng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Many strategies for asset allocation involve the computation of expected returns and the covariance or correlation matrix of financial instruments returns. How much of each instrument to own is determined by an attempt to ...
  • Wang, Hai, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The Last Mile Problem (LMP) refers to the provision of travel service from the nearest public transportation node to a home or office. We study the supply side of this problem in a stochastic setting, with batch demands ...
  • Herold, Thomas Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Recent decades have seen the development of more advanced sensor and communication systems, with the future certainly holding more innovation in these areas. However, current operations involve "stovepipe" systems in which ...
  • Frumin, Michael S (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The broad goal of this thesis is to demonstrate the potential positive impacts of applying automatic data to the management and tactical planning of a modern urban railway. Tactical planning is taken here to mean the set ...
  • Bradwick, Matthew E. (Matthew Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis considers approaches to influencing population opinions during counterinsurgency efforts in Afghanistan. A discrete time, agent-based threshold model is developed to analyze the propagation of beliefs in the ...
  • Chaiwanon, Wongsakorn (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Poor management of the patient flow in intensive care units (ICUs) causes service rejections and presents significant challenges from the standpoint of capacity planning and management in ICUs. This thesis reports on the ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
