We consider in this article the arbitrage free pricing of double knock-out barrier options with payoffs that are arbitrary functions of the underlying asset, where we allow exponentially time-varying barrier levels in an ...
Many business decision problems involve multiple objectives and can thus be described by multiple objective linear programming (MOLP) models. When a MOLP problem is being formulated, the parameters of objective functions ...
In this study, a special situation involving a computationally di$cult #owshop scheduling problem is discussed. The objective of this problem is to minimize a weighted combination of job #owtime and schedule makespan. An ...
Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death among the women in many parts of the world. In 2007, approximately 178,480 women in the United States have been found to have invasive breast cancer. In this paper, we ...
A new method for pricing lookback options (a.k.a.hindsightoptions) is presented, which simplifies the derivation of analytical formulas for this class of exotics in the Black-Scholes framework. Underlying the method is the ...
Organizational bilevel decision-making often involves uncertain factors. The parameters shown in a bilevel programming model, either in the objective functions or constraints, are thus often imprecise, which is called the ...
Kth-best approach is one of the three popular and workable approaches for linear bilevel programming. However, it could not well deal with a linear bilevel programming problem when the constraint functions at the upper-level ...
Kuhn-Tucker approach has been applied with remarkable success in linear bilevel programming (BLP). However, it still has some extent unsatisfactory and incomplete. One principle challenges is that it could not well handle ...
This paper presents a real-coded genetic algorithm (RCGA) with new genetic operations (crossover and mutation). They are called the average-bound crossover and wavelet mutation. By introducing the proposed genetic operations, ...
This paper investigates two variants of a Keynesian model of monetary growth with sluggish price and quantity adjustments. The first model integrates the real growth dynamics of Rose's employment cycle, an inflationary ...
Customer classification is one of the major tasks in customer relationship management. Customers often have both static characteristics and dynamic behavioral features. Using both kinds of data to conduct comprehensive ...
In this note, it is shown that there exist non-topologically generated spaces which are both Lowen uniformizable and Hutton uniformizable. On the other hand, the FNS-coreflection of the Hutton unit interval I(I) is neither ...

This brief presents a new structure of active inductors. These synthetic inductors are designed using current controlled voltage sources. The signal flow graph method is used for this purpose. For the practical realization, ...
Long duration driving is a significant cause of fatigue related accidents on motorways. Fatigue caused by driving for extended hours can acutely impair driverâ¿¿s alertness and performance. This papers presents an artificial ...
Enlarging upon work of Nicorovici, McPhedran & Milton (Nicorovici et al. 1994 Phys. Rev. B 49(12), 8479-8482), a rigorous proof is given that in the quasistatic regime a cylindrical superlens can successfully image a dipole ...
Torsion is one of the primary actions in members curved in space, and so an accurate spatially curved-beam element needs to be able to predict the elasto-plastic torsional behaviour of such members correctly. However, there ...
