  • Rimm-Kaufman, Alan Philip (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Beunardeau, Roland (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    I propose a discrete time model of financial markets in which an arbitrageur has investment opportunities but faces a number of financial constraints. Investment opportunities arise when the price discrepancy between a ...
  • Strydom, Johann J. (Johann Jurie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Insurance firms perform two key economic functions. First, they intermediate risk by marketing, selling and administering insurance policies. Second, they warehouse the risks underlying those policies. If viewed as separate ...
  • Nguyen, Tri-Dung, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Classical methods of maximum likelihood and least squares rely a great deal on the correctness of the model assumptions. Since these assumptions are only approximations of reality, many robust statistical methods have been ...
  • McCann, Lauren, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis, we study the problems of robust model selection and outlier detection in linear regression. The results of data analysis based on linear regressions are highly sensitive to model choice and the existence ...
  • Sim, Melvyn, 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    We propose new methodologies in robust optimization that promise greater tractability, both theoretically and practically than the classical robust framework. We cover a broad range of mathematical optimization problems, ...
  • Pachamanova, Dessislava A. (Dessislava Angelova), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    An important issue in real-world optimization problems is how to treat uncertain coefficients. Robust optimization is a modeling methodology that takes a deterministic view: the optimal solution is required to remain ...
  • Marla, Lavanya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    We consider large-scale, network-based, resource allocation problems under uncertainty, with specific focus on the class of problems referred to as multi-commodity flow problems with time-windows. These problems are at the ...
  • Aghassi, Michele Leslie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    We propose a robust optimization approach to analyzing three distinct classes of problems related to the notion of equilibrium: the nominal variational inequality (VI) problem over a polyhedron, the finite game under payoff ...
  • Bryant, Corban Harrell (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis. we introduce and analyze methods of creating theater-level robust mission plans for Effects Based Operations (EBO) of teams of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and propose methods of effectively presenting ...
  • 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 ...
  • Le Tallec, Yann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Markov Decision Processes (MDPs) model problems of sequential decision-making under uncertainty. They have been studied and applied extensively. Nonetheless, there are two major barriers that still hinder the applicability ...
  • Flam, Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1965)
  • Shan, Raymond S. (Raymond Shing) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    When starting the journey to become a Lean company, companies commonly face the problem of understanding how to manage a Lean transformation. Often times, the first step in managing a Lean transformation is to understand ...
  • Knight, Kenneth Darnell, 1960- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The state of business in the U.S. automobile industry is such that competition is fierce, and consumers have a perplexing number of alternatives from which to choose. The final purchase decision by the consumer is where ...
  • Gibbs, Philip Archel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Banish, Bryan J. (Bryan John), 1971-; Nawaz, Muhammad I. 1960- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Golabi, Zanyar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Generally speaking, both supply and use of energy in Iran are unsustainable. The unsustainable energy supply and use coupled with an unreliable and unsecure energy system have striking and lasing impacts on economic, social ...
  • Hoffman, Laurel (Laurel Anne) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this paper we examine a challenge that many companies are facing: how to respond to increased variation within their manufacturing operations. I posit that the challenges posed here are addressable with tools managers ...
