We study several classes of related scheduling problems including the carpool problem, its generalization to arbitrary inputs and the chairman assignment problem. We derive both lower and upperâ€¦ (More)

A sufficient geometrical condition for the existence of absolutely continuous invariant probability measures for Sâˆ’unimodal maps will be discussed. The Lebesgue typical existence of such measures inâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we study the relationship between valid inequalities for mixed-integer sets, lattice-free sets associated with these inequalities and structured disjunctive cuts, especially theâ€¦ (More)

Let G(n, c/n) and Gr(n) be an n-node sparse random graph and a sparse random rregular graph, respectively, and let I(n, r) and I(n, c) be the sizes of the largest independent set in G(n, c/n) andâ€¦ (More)

The Joint Replenishment Problem (JRP) is a fundamental optimization problem in supply-chain management, concerned with optimizing the flow of goods over time from a supplier to retailers. Over time,â€¦ (More)
