A nonlinear (nonconvex) programming model provides a new definition of efficiency for use in evaluating activities of not-for-profit entities participating in public programs. A scalar measure of the efficiency of each participating unit is thereby provided, along with methods for objectively determining weights by reference to the observational data for(More)
SCOpf Ind purpose-The transportation and transshipment problem was among the earliest to be attacked by the methods of operations resutch. The methods and al,orithms used for optimizina the aJlcx:ation of transportalton capability are also used for many other Steminal)' unrelated problems of allocation and allotment. Because of this wide range,of(More)
Ex = (I + y / t) (l +. r y / : ') El0 = (1 + ! / / Z) (l + .r2y/:3) all R-multiples of Es. The error positions in this case are (j. 1. l) , In general, when decoding an error relative to an algebraic geometric code C*(D. 7rtP), there is a vector space S (g) l of error-locator functions of dimension Z(m)-e. Most algorithms settle for any element of this(More)
This paper presents Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) has been used in a wide variety of applied research and it is a linear programming methodology that has been widely used to evaluate the performance of a set of decision-making units (DMUs). It requires crisp input and output data. However, in reality input and output cannot be measured in a precise(More)
