|Quantization using permutation codes with a uniform source
||Permutation coding is a block coding/quantization scheme where the codebook is comprised
entirely of permutations of a single starting vector. Permutation codes for the uniform
source are developed using a simple algorithm. The performance of these...
|Solving the binary integer bi-level linear programming problem
||This thesis will introduce a historical perspective of the development of work in the field of multi-level linear programming. It will then proceed to extend the theoretical work of the mixed integer bi-level linear programming problem to encompass ...
|Heuristics for two-machine flowshop scheduling with setup times and an availability constraint
||This paper studies the two-machine flowshop scheduling problem with anticipatory
setup times and an availability constraint imposed on only one of the machines where
interrupted jobs can resume their operations. We present a heuristic algorithm fro...
|A method for solving the minimization of the maximum number of open stacks problem within a cutting process
||In this paper, the problem of minimizing the maximum number of open stacks
around a saw machine is addressed. A new heuristic and a branch-and-bound based
exact method for the problem are presented....
