M/G/ oo with Batch Arrivals
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 198709)Let po(n) be the distribution of the number N(oo) in the system at ergodicity for systems with an infinite number of servers, batch arrivals with general batch size distribution and general holding times. This distribution ... 
Markov Analysis of an Alternative to Pure Random Assignment
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 197907)There are many public policy settings in which random assignment of clients to experimental and control groups is not feasible. I will discuss one such case, and the alternative method of assignment which was actually used. ... 
The Mathematical Analysis of Multilocation Distribution Systems: A Survey
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 197309)Not Available 
A mathematical programming approach to stochastic and dynamic optimization problems
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1994) 
Mathematical programming models and methods for production planning and scheduling
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1988) 
A method for the parametric center problem, with a strictly monotone polynomialtime algorithm for linear programming
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1989) 
Methods for Allocating Urban Emergency Units
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 197106)An urban emergency service system provides mobile units (vehicles) to respond to requests for service which can occur at any time and any place throughout a city. This paper surveys recent quantitative work aimed at improving ... 
Minimizing the number of vehicles to meet a fixed periodic schedule : an application of periodic posets
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1980) 
The Minimum Spanning Tree Constant in Geometrical Probability and Under the Independent Model; A Unified Approach
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 199004)Given n uniformly and independently points in the d dimensional cube of unit volume, it is well established that the length of the minimum spanning tree on these n points is asymptotic to /3MsT(d)n(dl)/d,where the constant ... 
MOARE : a national energy planning system for Argentina
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1984) 
A Model for Optimal Dynamic Control of Emissions
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 197205)This paper argues that, for large air pollution sources, it may be better to set emission standards which differ for days with differing ventilation conditions instead of the common method of setting a single emission ... 
A Model for the Dynamic UserEquilibrium Problem Using a Hydrodynamic Theory Approach
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 199602)In this paper we study the dynamic userequilibrium problem. The development of Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) has made this problem very popular in the recent years. In this paper we take a hydrodynamic theory ... 
A model for the efficient use of energy resources
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1977) 
Modeling and Optimization for Transportation Systems Planning and Operations
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 197607)In this paper, we focus on a number of applications of network optimization techniques to transportation systems analysis. In particular, network analysis problems, network design problems, and network management problems ... 
Modeling and Solving the Capacitated Network Loading Problem
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 199101)This paper studies a topical and economically significant capacitated network design problem that arises in the telecommunications industry. In this problem, given pointtopoint demand between various pairs of nodes of a ... 
Modeling and solving the single facility line restoration problem
