  • Hatayama, Hiroaki (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Carlos Ghosn of Nissan and Sir Howard Stringer of Sony are the first non-Japanese top executives of Japanese global enterprises. At the time they were appointed CEOs, both companies were in crisis: Nissan almost facing ...
  • Wang, Yanbo, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This dissertation focuses on three of the most important questions in entrepreneurship study, namely venture financing, corporate strategy and firm performance. The main thrust of the dissertation is to elaborate the ...
  • Johnson, Derek Christopher (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    I examine the negotiation of accounting rules in the purchase price adjustment clause of corporate acquisition agreements. Purchase price adjustments make the deal value contingent on the target's closing working capital ...
  • Afuah, Allan Nembo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1990)
  • Ayres, Herbert Frazer (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1963)
  • Jootar, Jay, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    The development of complex systems is a challenging endeavor which has captured the attentions of scholars and practitioners alike. Throughout the decades, numerous methods have been proposed to help manage such development ...
  • Cosgrove, James G; Guzzi, Ubiratan N (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1985)
  • Croce, Steven A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Sikorsky Aircraft Co. currently finds itself in a critical growth period, in terms of both sales contracts and supplier agreements. Popular supply chain strategies preach reduction and simplification of the supply base, ...
  • 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 ...
