Abstract:
We prove a central limit theorem for a class of additive processes that arise naturally in the
theory of finite horizon Markov decision problems. The main theorem generalizes a…






Continuous optimization is a key component of modern data analysis. Recently, the demands
of extremely largescale applications have shifted the focus from high cost, high accuracy
methods to low…


Large systems of interacting particles are very complex but also interplay with a large set of applications, from cosmology to the biosciences. Particles can actually represent a wide range of…

Abstract
In today's dataintense and complex business environment, inventory managers face the massive challenge of simultaneously optimizing millions of products' inventories. Due to the…


We consider the problem faced by a procurement agency that runs an auctiontype mechanism to construct a menu (assortment of products with posted prices), from a set of differentiated products…


Assortment planning is a major operational issue that arises in many industries, such as retailing, airlines and consumer electronics. Given a set of products (or services) that are differentiated by…
