20041002BuchA class of stochastic programs with decision dependent uncertainty The standard approach to formulating stochastic programs is based on the assumption that the stochastic process is independent of the optimization decision. We address a class of problems where the optimization decisions ...

20150422BuchA Comment on "Computational Complexityof Stochastic Programming Problems" Although stochastic programming problems were always believed to be computationally challenging, this perception has only recently received a theoretical justification by the seminal workof Dyer and Stougie (Mathematical ...

20051229BuchA Comparative Study of Decomposition Algorithms for Stochastic Combinatorial Optimization This paper presents comparative computational results using three decomposition algorithms on a battery of instances drawn from three different applications. In order to preserve the commonalities among the algorithms in ...

20100604BuchA comparison of samplebased stochastic optimal control methods In this paper, we compare the performance of two scenariobased numerical methods to solve stochastic optimal control problems: scenario trees and particles. The problem consists in ﬁnding strategies to control a dynamicalsystem ...

20090519BuchA computational study of a solver system for processing twostage stochastic linear programming problems Formulation of stochastic optimisation problems and computational algorithms for their solution continue to make steady progress as can be seenfrom an analysis of many developments in this ﬁeld. The edited volume by Wallace ...

20110623ZeitschriftenartikelA Conflation of Characters: The Portrayal of Aristotle and Averroës as Jews in a Venetian Incunabulum This article examines the illustrations on the frontispieces of a twovolume incunabulum printed in Venice in 1483 in which the artist Girolamo da Cremona represented Averroës, Aristotle and other philosophers as Jews. ...

2017Zeitschriftenartikel“A direct Pipeline to the Soul”. Zur Geschichte von Tricks und Täuschungen als epistemisch motivierte Umwege in der sozialpsychologischen Forschung

20000120BuchA Dynamic Asset Allocation Model with Downside Risk Control This paper presents a new stochastic model for investment. The investor's objective is to maximize the expected growth rate while controlling for downside risk. Assuming lognormally distributed prices, the strategy that ...

20080306BuchA dynamic dayahead paratransit planning problem We consider a dynamic planning problem for the transport of elderly and disabled people. The focus is on a decision to make one day ahead:which requests to serve with own vehicles, and which ones to assign to subcontractors, ...

20040219BuchA factor 1/2 approximation algorithm for a class of twostage stochastic mixedinteger programs Abstract We introduce the twostage stochastic maximumweight matching problem and demonstrate that this problem is NPcomplete. We give a factor 1/2 approximation algorithm and prove its correctness. We also provide a ...

20000704BuchA finite branch and bound algorithm for twostage stochastic integer programs This paper addresses a general class of twostage stochastic programs with integer recourse and discrete distributions. We exploit the structure of the value function of the second stage integer problem to develop a novel ...

20110218ZeitschriftenartikelA fourth phase of the extreme right? Nordic immigrationcritical parties in a comparative context Sowohl in den Medien als auch in wissenschaftlichen Publikationen haben rechtsextreme Parteien in den vergangenen Jahren an Aufmerksamkeit gewonnen. Dabei ist diese besondere Parteienfamilie, die die etablierten Parteien ...

20110913BuchA gradient formula for linear chance constraints under Gaussian distribution We provide an explicit gradient formula for linear chance constraints under a (possibly singular) multivariate Gaussian distribution. This formula allows one to reduce the calculus of gradients to the calculus of values ...

20010406BuchA heuristic for generating scenario trees for multistage decision problems In stochastic programming models we always face the problem of how to represent the random variables. This is particularly difficult with multidimensional distributions. We present an algorithm that produces a discrete ...

20081218ZeitschriftenartikelA hidden history The University of Edinburgh’s Cultural Collections AuditThe Cultural Collections Audit project began at the University of Edinburgh in 2004, searching for hidden treasures in its 'distributed heritage collections' across the university. The objects and collections recorded in ...

20061018BuchA JELS Stochastic inventory model with random demand A stochastic joint lot size model has been developed in which demand ofthe customer and the stock level of the vendor are assumed to be identicallydistributed continuous random variables. The effective ways for a ...

20030101ZeitschriftenartikelA journey from Dreamtime to Machine Time: Australian history through the eyes of Australian Indigenous artists Di Yerbury, a collector of Australian art for 30 years, started collecting Indigenous art in the mid1980s as CEO of the Australia Council of which the Aboriginal Arts Board was part. She has since built one of Australia's ...

20130514BuchA mixedinteger stochastic nonlinear optimization problem with joint probabilistic constraints We illustrate the solution of a mixedinteger stochastic nonlinear optimization problem in an application of power management. In this application, a coupled system consisting of a hydro power station and a wind farm is ...

20090405BuchA model for dynamic chance constraints in hydro power reservoir management In this paper, a model for (joint) dynamic chance constraints is proposed and applied to an optimization problem in water reservoir management. The model relies on discretization of the decision variables but keeps the ...
