Note:Research in Bayesian analysis and statistical decision theory is rapidly expanding and diversifying, making it increasingly more difficult for any single researcher to stay up to date on all current research frontiers. This bookprovides a review of c urrent research challenges and opportunities. While the book can not exhaustively cover all current research areas, it does include some exemplary discussion of most research frontiers. Topics include objectiveBayesian inference, shrinkage estimation and other decision based estimation, model selection and testing, nonparametric Bayes, the interface of Bayesian and frequentist inference, data mining and machine learning, methods forcategorical and spatio-temporal data analysis and posterior simulation met hods. Several major application areas are covered: computer models, Bayesian clinical trial design, epidemiology, phylogenetics, bioinformatics, climate modelingand applications in political science, finance and marketing. As a review of current research in Bayesian analysis the book presents a balance between theory and applications. The lack of a clear demarcation between theoretical andapplied research is a reflection of the highly interdisciplinary and often applied nature of research in Bayesian stat istics. The book is intended as an update for researchers in Bayesian statistics, including non-statisticians whomake use of Bayesian inference to address substantive research questions in other fields. It would also be useful for graduate students and re search scholars in statistics or biostatistics who wish to acquaint themselves with currentresearch frontiers.

Title:Planning and Scheduling in Manufacturing and Services [electronic resource]

Edition:2
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This second edition book focuses on planning and scheduling applications with a new chapter on planning and scheduling in health care. Planning and scheduling are forms of decision-making that play an important role in mostmanufacturing and services industries. The planning and scheduling functions in a company typically use analytical techniques and heuristic methods to allocate its limited resources to the activities that have to be done. Theapplication areas considered in this book are divided int o manufacturing applications and services applications. The book covers four areas in planning and scheduling: preliminary scheduling, planning and scheduling in manufacturing,planning and scheduling in services and systems development and implementation. It covers four areas in services: reservations and timetabling, tournament scheduling, planning and scheduling in transportation, planning and sheduling inhealthcare and workforce scheduling. At the end of each chapter, a case study or a system implementa tion is described in detail. Numerous examples and exercises throughout the book illustrate the material presented. The fundamentalsconcerning the methodologies used in the application chapters are covered in the appendices. This book is suitable for more advanced students in industrial engineering and operations research as well as graduate students in business.Michael Pinedo is the Julius Schlesinger Professor of Operations Management in the Stern School of Business at New York University. His research interests lie in the theoretical and applied aspects of planning and scheduling. He haswritten numerous papers on the theory of deterministic and stochastic scheduling and has also consulted extensively in industry. He has been actively involved in the de velopment of several large industrial planning and schedulingsystems.

Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Reactive Search integrates sub-symbolic machine learning techniques into search heuristics for solving complex optimization problems. By automatically adjusting the working parameters, a reactive search self-tunes and adapts,effectively learning by d oing until a solution is found. Intelligent Optimization, a superset of Reactive Search, concerns online and off-line schemes based on the use of memory, adaptation, incremental development of models,experimental algorithms applied to optimization, intell igent tuning and design of heuristics. Reactive Search and Intelligent Optimization is an excellent introduction to the main principles of reactive search, as well as an attempt todevelop some fresh intuition for the approaches. The book looks at differen t optimization possibilities with an emphasis on opportunities for learning and self-tuning strategies. While focusing more on methods than on problems,problems are introduced wherever they help make the discussion more concrete, or when a specific proble m has been widely studied by reactive search and intelligent optimization heuristics. Individual chapters cover reacting on theneighborhood reacting on the annealing schedule reactive prohibitions model-based search reacting on the objective function rela tionships between reactive search and reinforcement learning and much more. Each chapter isstructured to show basic issues and algorithms the parameters critical for the success of the different methods discussed and opportunities and schemes for the auto mated tuning of these parameters. Anyone working in decision makingin business, engineering, economics or science will find a wealth of information here

Note:The rapid growth in electronic systems in the past decade has boosted research in the area of computational intelligence. As it has become increasingly easy to generate, collect, transport, process, and store huge amounts of data,the role of intellig ent algorithms has become prominent in order to visualize, manipulate, retrieve, and interpret the data. For instance, intelligent search techniques have been developed to search for relevant items in hugecollections of web pages, and data mining and inte rpretation techniques play a very important role in making sense out of huge amounts of biomolecular measurements. As a result, the added value of many modern systems is no longerdetermined by hardware only, but increasingly by the intelligent software th at supports and facilitates the user in realizing his or her objectives. This book is the outcome of a series of discussions at the Philips Symposium onIntelligent Algorithms, which was held in Eindhoven in December 2004. It contains many exciting and pra ctical examples of the use of intelligent algorithms in the areas of ambient and biomedical computing. It contains topics such asbioscience computing, database design, machine consciousness, scheduling, video summarization, audio classification, semantic reasoning, machine learning, tracking & localization, secure computing, and communication

Note:This volume is an outgrowth of the workshop Applications of Advanced Control Theory to Robotics and Automation, organized in honor of the 70th birthdays of Petar V. Kokotovic and Salvatore (Turi) Nicosia. Both Petar and Turihave carried out distingui shed work in the control community and have long been recognized as mentors, experts, and pioneers in the field of automatic control, covering many topics in control theory and several different applications.The variety of their research is reflected in t his book, which includes contributions from leading experts in the field ranging from mathematics to laboratory experiments. Main topics covered include: * State Estimation andIdentification: observer designs for nonlinear systems and linear time-delay sy stems, as well as identification techniques for linear, nonlinear, piecewise linear, and hybrid systems. * Control and System Theory: theoretical resultsrelated to the analysis and control of dynamical systems, including a presentation of Lyapunov tools f or linear differential inclusions, a study of the control of constrained systems, and a treatment of finite-time stability concepts.* Robotics: new studies of robot manipulators, parameter identification, and different control problems for mobile robots. * Control of Electromechanical Systems: applications of modern control techniques to port-controlled Hamiltoniansystems, different classes of vehicles, and web processing systems. * Manufacturing Systems: applications of the max-plus algebra to system agg regation, optimal machine scheduling problems, and inventory control with cooperationbetween retailers. * Networked Control Systems: analysis and design problems related to linear and nonlinear networked control systems. The scope of the work is quite bro ad, and although each chapter is self-contained, the book hasbeen organized into thematically related chapters, and in some cases, convenient reading sequences are suggested to the reader.

Title:Planning and Scheduling in Manufacturing and Services [electronic resource]
Author(s): Michael L Pinedo
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book focuses on planning and scheduling applications. Planning and scheduling are forms of decision-making that play an important role in most manufacturing and services industries. The planning and scheduling functions in acompany typically use analytical techniques and heuristic methods to allocate its limited resources to the activities that have to be done. The application areas considered in this book are divided into manufacturing applications andservices applications. The book covers five areas in manufacturing: project scheduling, job shop scheduling, scheduling of flexible assembly systems, economic lot scheduling, and planning and scheduling in supply chains. It covers fourareas in services: reservations and timetabling, tournament sch eduling, planning and scheduling in transportation, and workforce scheduling. At the end of each chapter, a case study or a system implementation is described in detail.Numerous examples and exercises throughout the book illustrate the material presented. The fundamentals concerning the methodologies used in the application chapters are covered in the appendices. This book is suitable for moreadvanced students in industrial engineering and operations research as well as graduate students in business. Mich ael Pinedo is the Julius Schlesinger Professor of Operations Management in the Stern School of Business at New YorkUniversity. His research interests lie in the theoretical and applied aspects of planning and scheduling. He has written numerous papers on the theory of deterministic and stochastic scheduling and has also consulted extensively inindustry. He has been actively involved in the development of several large industrial planning and scheduling systems
