Price probing in the simplex method
This paper describes remote probing, a method that employs the principle of external pivoting and evaluates points with respect to their objective values from a given basic point, i.e., without ever moving out of that basic ...
The bounce algorithm for mathematical, programming
This paper describes a constrained optimization method that was inspired by the physical equivalent of a small ball that, propelled only by gravity, is dropped from an initial point inside a full-dimensional body, represented ...
A spatial criterion as decision aid for capital projects: locating a sewage treatment plant in Halifax, Nova Scotia
This paper describes a decision tool based on a domain criterion originally designed for games against nature. We employ this technique to analyse the locational choice of a sewage treatment plant in the city of Halifax, ...
A computational investigation into shapes of polyhedra
In this paper we first derive a measure to evaluate the shape of polyhedra based on the well-known concept of roundness. The resulting roundness index expresses the degree of deformity of a polyhedron measured as the ...
