Описание: To a large extent, the air cargo market is a B2B service market between air cargo carriers and forwarding companies. Sellers strive to mitigate risk by engaging in advance sale of capacity via long-term contracts. However, these contracts often leave buyers with an incentive to default if unforeseen price and demand movements occur. This work proposes capacity options as an alternative contract type providing the desired flexibility and shows how capacity can be priced through option contracts. The analysis is conducted by means of an analytical multivariate optimization model under price and demand uncertainty. An application case study conducted on the basis of empirical data from a leading German air cargo carrier illustrates the financial potential. Furthermore, it is shown how capacity-option contracts integrate into the context of air cargo revenue management.
Описание: It presents recent and pressing issues in stochastic processes, control theory, differential games, optimization, and their applications in finance, manufacturing, queueing networks, and climate control. The book is dedicated to Professor Suresh Sethi on the occasion of his 60th birthday, in view of his distinguished career.
Описание: After motivating examples, this monograph gives substantial new results on the analysis and control of linear repetitive processes. These include further applications of the abstract model based stability theory which, in particular, shows the critical importance to the dynamics developed of the structure of the initial conditions at the start of each new pass, the development of stability tests and performance bounds in terms of so-called 1D and 2D Lyapunov equations. It presents the development of a major bank of results on the structure and design of control laws, including the case when there is uncertainty in the process model description, together with numerically reliable computational algorithms. Finally, the application of some of these results in the area of iterative learning control is treated --- including experimental results from a chain conveyor system and a gantry robot system.
Описание: Optimal Control and Dynamic Games has been edited to honor the outstanding contributions of Professor Suresh Sethi in the fields of Applied Optimal Control. Professor Sethi is internationally one of the foremost experts in this field. He is, among others, co-author of the popular textbook "Sethi and Thompson: Optimal Control Theory: Applications to Management Science and Economics". The book consists of a collection of essays by some of the best known scientists in the field, covering diverse aspects of applications of optimal control and dynamic games to problems in Finance, Management Science, Economics, and Operations Research. In doing so, it provides both a state-of-the-art overview over recent developments in the field, and a reference work covering the wide variety of contemporary questions that can be addressed with optimal control tools, and demonstrates the fruitfulness of the methodology.

Описание: This work offers a large-scale empirical survey of Chinese organization in mainland China, with a special focus on the previously neglected private enterprises. It combines theory development, such as the "Web-based Chinese Management" model, with practical advice.
Описание: Fierce competition in today's global market provides a powerful motivation for developing ever more sophisticated logistics systems. This book, written for the logistics manager and researcher, presents a survey of the modern theory and application of logistics. The goal of the book is to present the state of the art in the science of logistics management. As a result, the authors have written a timely and authoritative survey of this field that many practitioners and researchers will find makes an invaluable companion to their work.
Описание: Because the theoretical part of the book is based on the calculus of variations, the exposition is very transparent and requires mostly a trivial mathematical background. In the case of open-loop optimal control, this leads to PontryaginвЂ™s Minimum Principle and, in the case of closed-loop optimal control, to the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman theory which exploits the principle of optimality.Many optimal control problems are solved completely in the body of the text. Furthermore, all of the exercise problems which appear at the ends of the chapters are sketched in the appendix.The book also covers some material that is not usually found in optimal control text books, namely, optimal control problems with non-scalar-valued performance criteria (with applications to optimal filtering) and LukesвЂ™ method of approximatively-optimal control design.Furthermore, a short introduction to differential game theory is given. This leads to the Nash-Pontryagin Minimax Principle and to the Hamilton-Jacobi-Nash theory. The reason for including this topic lies in the important connection between the differential game theory and the Hinfinity-control theory for the design of robust controllers.
Описание: This is a book for those who want to understand the main ideas in the theory of optimal problems. It provides a good introduction to classical topics (under the
heading of "the calculus of variations") and more modern topics (under the heading of "optimal control"). It employs the language and terminology of functional analysis to discuss and
justify the setup of problems that are of great importance in applications.
The book is concise and self-contained, and should be suitable for readers with a standard
undergraduate background in engineering mathematics.
Описание: The task to develop a practicable simulation tool for optimal control of soil vapor extraction was attacked by an interdisciplinary group consisting of
mathematicians, soil physicists, chemists and in cooperation with a remediation company. The purpose of this book is to describe the latest and most appropriate mathematical and
numerical methods for optimizing soil venting and to demonstrate the application beginning with a conceptual mathematical model, the derivation and estimation of model parameters,
generation of parameter distributions, sensitivity analysis, model calibration and numerical analysis of two spillage test cases, and stochastic optimization. The monograph considers
mathematical, numerical, technical aspects as well as the practical significance.
This book will be of interest to applied mathematicians, geophysicists, geoecologist, soil
physicists, and environmental engineers.
