Advances in Computational Intelligence in Transport, by Theodore Tsekeris, Loukas Dimitriou, Antony Stathopoulos

By Theodore Tsekeris, Loukas Dimitriou, Antony Stathopoulos (auth.), Andreas Fink, Franz Rothlauf (eds.)

The publication handy offers a cautious choice of correct purposes of CI equipment for delivery, logistics, and provide chain administration difficulties. The chapters illustrate the present state of the art within the software of CI tools in those fields and will support and encourage researchers and practitioners to use and advance effective tools. a couple of contributions during this publication are prolonged types of papers awarded at EvoTransLog2007: the 1st ecu Workshop on Evolutionary Computation in Transportation and Logistics which used to be held in Valencia, Spain, in 2007. nearly all of contributions are from extra, particularly chosen researchers, who've performed correct paintings in several parts of delivery, logistics, and provide chain administration. The aim is to generally conceal consultant functions in those fields in addition to types of answer techniques. at the program aspect, the contributions specialise in layout of site visitors and transportation networks, motor vehicle routing, and different vital features of offer chain administration resembling stock administration, lot sizing, and lot scheduling. at the strategy facet, the contributions take care of evolutionary algorithms, neighborhood seek techniques, and scatter seek mixed with different CI thoughts akin to neural networks or fuzzy techniques. The publication is established in line with the applying domain names. hence, it has 3 elements facing site visitors and transportation networks, car routing, and provide chain management.

Bank Management and Financial Services, 7th Edition

The 8th variation of "Banking and fiscal companies" is publishing at a time the place the realm that we are living in is altering swiftly. the whole monetary quarter is threatened by means of major hazards at domestic and in a foreign country, in and out the person monetary enterprise. "Banking and monetary companies" is designed to assist scholars grasp tested administration ideas and to confront the puzzling problems with hazard, legislation, expertise, and pageant that bankers and different financial-service managers see as their maximum demanding situations for the current and destiny.

User Interface Management Systems: Models and Algorithms (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Graphics and Geometric Modeling) by Olsen, Dan R., Jr. (1991) Hardcover

This ebook brings jointly for the 1st time all significant ways to person Interface administration structures (UIMS) improvement from a programmer's algorithmic point of view. a few of the versions for describing dialogs and producing consumer interfaces are mentioned in the framework of a basic UIMS structure.

Understanding Hydrological Variability for Improved Water Management in the Semi-Arid Karkheh Basin, Iran: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

This research presents a hydrology established review of (surface) water assets and its continuum of variability and alter at various spatio-temporal scales within the semi‑arid Karkheh Basin, Iran, the place water is scarce, pageant between clients is excessive and big water assets improvement is less than means.

Change Management in Versicherungsunternehmen: Die Zukunft der Assekuranz erfolgreich gestalten (German Edition)

Die Versicherungsbranche steht vor gewaltigen Veränderungen. Die wesentlichen Treiber dafür sind der Kostendruck aufgrund von geändertem Kundenverhalten und gestiegenem Wettbewerb, Veränderungen verursacht durch Regulierung, die Rahmenbedingungen des Marktes mit einer langfristigen Niedrigzinsphase und geringem Wachstum und der Innovationsdruck aufgrund von gesättigten Märkten.

Stathopoulos particularly since the seminal study of Du and Nicholson [13]. The present study uses the concept of the Total Travel Time (T T T ) reliability, which denotes the network’s ability to respond to the various states of the system variables. This ability can be manifested both in everyday operating conditions and especially during incidents or unpredictable events, like man-made or physical disasters, which potentially degrade the expected (planned) performance of the network. Particularly in the latter case, a reliable design process is supposed to ensure the provision of the sufficient lifelines to support various emergency (for instance, evacuation) operations.

Genetic algorithm for continuous network design problem. hk Summary. This chapter considers the optimal toll ring design problem in a general urban traffic network. , equity impact or revenue). In this chapter, the GA based algorithm proposed by [13] is integrated with a penalty based approach to tackle the problem. Three penalty methods including static, dynamic, and self-adaptive penalties are investigated. The algorithm is tested with a realistic traffic network. Keywords: Road pricing, Optimal toll location, Genetic algorithms, Constraint handling.
