Support vector machines (SVMs), that utilize a mixture of the L1-norm and the L2-norm penalties, are capable of performing simultaneous classification and selection of highly correlated features. These SVMs, typically set up as convex programming problems, are re-formulated here as simple convex quadratic minimization problems over non-negativity(More)
F reasons of tractability, the airline scheduling problem has traditionally been sequentially decomposed into various stages (e.g., schedule generation, fleet assignment, aircraft routing, and crew pairing), with the decisions from one stage imposed upon the decision making process in subsequent stages. Although this approach greatly simplifies the solution(More)

To achieve greater transit-time reduction and improvement in reliability of transport services, there is an increasing need to assist transport planners in understanding the value of punctuality; i.e. the potential improvements, not only to service quality and the consumer but also to the actual profitability of the service. In order for this to be(More)
The ability to monitor tumor motion without implanted markers can potentially enable broad access to more accurate and precise lung radiotherapy. A major challenge is that kilovoltage (kV) imaging based methods are rarely able to continuously track the tumor due to the inferior tumor visibility on 2D kV images. Another challenge is the estimation of 3D(More)
Waterborne parasites that infect both humans and animals are common causes of diarrhoeal illness, but the relative importance of transmission between humans and animals and vice versa remains poorly understood. Transmission of infection from animals to humans via environmental reservoirs, such as water sources, has attracted attention as a potential source(More)
In many real-world transportation systems, passengers are often required to make a number of interchanges between different modes of transport. As cities continue to grow, a greater number of these connections tend to occur within centrally located Transport Hubs. In order to encourage the uptake of public transport in major cities, it is important for(More)
