Working Paper Series Introduction and Overview Networked Infrastructure systems deliver services and/or products from point to point along the network. Each is a fixed capacity system having marked time-of-day and day-of-week patterns of demand. Usually, the statistics of demand, including hourly patterns (i.e., means and variances) are well known and often(More)
Working Paper Series ABSTRACT Services industries comprise about 75% of the economy of developed nations. To design and operate services systems for today and tomorrow, we need to educate a new type of engineer who focuses not on manufacturing but on services. Such an engineer must be able to integrate 3 sciences-management, social and engineering – into(More)
This work investigates important properties related to cycles of embedding into the folded hypercube FQ n for n ≥ 2. The authors observe that FQ n is bipartite if and only if n is odd, and show that the minimum length of odd cycles is n + 1 if n is even. The authors further show that every edge of FQ n lies on a cycle of every even length from 4 to 2 n ; if(More)
As an enhancement on the hypercube Q n , the augmented cube AQ n , proposed by Choudum and Sunitha [S. not only retains some of the favorable properties of Q n but also possesses some embedding properties that Q n does not. For example, AQ n contains cycles of all lengths from 3 to 2 n , but Q n contains only even cycles. In this paper, we obtain two(More)
The super connectivity κ and the super edge-connectivity λ are more refined network reliability indices than connectivity κ and edge-connectivity λ. This paper shows that for a connected graph G with order at least four rather than a star and its line graph L(G), κ (L(G)) = λ (G) if and only if G is not super-λ. As a consequence, we obtain the result of(More)
Working Paper Series ABSTRACT Congestion pricing imposes a usage fee on a public resource during times of high demand. Road pricing involves cordoning off a section of the city and imposing a fee on vehicles that enter it. Parking pricing increases the costs of on-street and perhaps off-street parking. Following an historical review, we develop a new(More)
As an enhancement on the hypercube Q n , the augmented cube AQ n , prosed by Choudum and Sunitha [S. not only retains some favorable properties of Q n but also possesses some embedding properties that Q n does not. For example, AQ n is pancyclic, that is, AQ n contains cycles of arbitrary length for n 2. This paper shows that AQ n remains pancyclic provided(More)
