The quadratic assignment problem (QAP) is very challengeable and interesting problem that can model many real-life problems. In this paper, we will simply discuss the meaning of quadratic assignment problem, solving techniques and we will give a survey of some developments and researches.
A new bounding procedure for the Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP) is described which extends the Hungarian method for the Linear Assignment Problem (LAP) to QAPs, operating on the four dimensional cost array of the QAP objective function. The QAP is iteratively transformed in a series of equivalent QAPs leading to an increasing sequence of lower bounds(More)
This paper presents a new branch-and-bound algorithm for solving the Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP). The algorithm is based on a Dual Procedure (DP) similar to the Hungarian method for solving the Linear Assignment Problem. Our DP solves the QAP in certain cases, i.e., for some small problems (N<7) and for numerous larger problems (7≤N≤16) that arise as(More)

Autologous expression of recombinant human proteins in human cells for biomedical research and product development is often hampered by low expression yields limiting subsequent structural and functional analyses. Following RNA and codon optimization, 50 candidate genes representing five classes of human proteins--transcription factors, ribosomal and(More)
This paper presents a new method for optimal matching in observational studies based on mixed integer programming. Unlike widely used matching methods based on network algorithms, which attempt to achieve covariate balance by minimizing the total sum of distances between treated units and matched controls, this new method achieves covariate balance(More)
In recent years, there has been accumulating evidence that microRNAs are key regulator molecules of gene expression. The cellular processes that are regulated by microRNAs include e.g. cell proliferation, programmed cell death and cell differentiation. Adipocyte differentiation is a highly regulated cellular process for which several important regulating(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was performed to empirically evaluate T2-weighted fast spin-echo, moderately T2*-weighted gradient-refocused echo (GRE), and heavily T2*-weighted GRE sequences to determine which sequence is the most effective for nodal characterization on lymphotropic nanoparticle-enhanced MRI (LNMRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 65(More)
The TFCC is a crucial stabilizer of the DRUJ. Based on its superficial and deep fibers, the TFCC guarantees unrestricted pronation and supination which is essential for performing sophisticated tasks. The ability to perform complex movements is of uppermost importance for hand function. Therefore, a functional intact TFCC is a prerequisite in this context.(More)
