Quantization using permutation codes with a uniform source 2009 520 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 2009 2069 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 2009 662 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 2009 583 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....
