  • Price probing in the simplex method 

    Eiselt, HA, and CL Sandblom. 1999. "Price probing in the simplex method." Computers & Industrial Engineering 37(1-2): 489-492.
    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 ...
  • A Computational Study of Redundancy in Randomly Generated Polytopes 

    EISELT, HA, and CL SANDBLOM. 1993. "A Computational Study of Redundancy in Randomly Generated Polytopes." Computing 49(4): 315-327.
    In this paper we first survey a number of principles used to randomly generate linear programming problems. Three major classes of LP generators are identified and on that basis five generators for further study are defined. ...

  • A spatial criterion as decision aid for capital projects: locating a sewage treatment plant in Halifax, Nova Scotia 

    Eiselt, HA, CL Sandblom, and N. Jain. 1998. "A spatial criterion as decision aid for capital projects: locating a sewage treatment plant in Halifax, Nova Scotia." Journal of the Operational Research Society 49(1): 23-27.
    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 

    Eiselt, HA, CL Sandblom, and C. Barnsley. 1997. "A computational investigation into shapes of polyhedra." Computers & Industrial Engineering 32(1): 19-28.
    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 ...

  • The bounce algorithm for mathematical, programming 

    Eiselt, HA, and CL Sandblom. 2000. "The bounce algorithm for mathematical, programming." Mathematical Methods of Operations Research 52(2): 173-183.
    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 ...
