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 ...
We propose a Newton-GMREStype algorithm to solve the discrete von Karman problem. We show that this algorithm is efficient both in memory andcomputation time and robust in the neighborhood of the singular points of the ...
The problem of testing a dose-response relationship in the presence of exchangeably correlated binary data has been addressed using a variety of models. Most commonly used approaches are derived from likelihood or generalized ...

This paper focuses on the analysis of clustered multivariate binary data that arise from developmental toxicity studies. In these studies, pregnant mice are exposed to chemicals to assess possible adverse effects on ...
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 ...
The value of a census cannot be overstated, given that no other data resource provided such detailed information about the population. Further, censuses are often the only historical data source to map out chenge over time ...
Cigarette smoking and poor glycemic control are risk factors for diabetic nephropathy in type 1 diabetes. However, the specifics of the relation of these risk factors to the onset of this complication have not been elucidated. ...
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, ...
