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…

Variational analysis has come of age. Long an elegant theoretical toolkit for variational mathematics and nonsmooth optimization, it now increasingly underpins the study of algorithms, and a rich…

Many operational problems in data-rich environments can be characterized by three primitives: data on uncertain quantities of interest such as simultaneous demands, concurrent auxiliary data such as…

A recent choice model is based on modeling the customer choice process through a Markov chain. In this choice model, a customer arrives into the system with the intention of purchasing a particular…

Computing reliable solutions to inverse problems is important in many applications such as biomedical imaging, computer graphics, and security. Regularization by incorporating prior knowledge is…
