ANALYTIC NETWORK PROCESS APPROACH FOR DYNAMIC SYSTEM VALIDATION

Seminer

Title: ANALYTIC NETWORK PROCESS APPROACH FOR DYNAMIC SYSTEM VALIDATION Abstract: Validation is accepted as an essential stage in system dynamics (SD) modelling. It is challenging, often difficult, but necessary for any system modelling. Conceptual model development is believed to have great impact on validation of SD models. In this research, we used a multi-methodology approach to present a framework to […]

Variable Selection in Regression using Maximal Correlation and Distance Correlation

Seminer

Abstract: In most of the regression problems the first task is to select the most influential predictors explaining the response, and removing the others from the model. These problems are usually referred to as the variable selection problems in the statistical literature. Numerous methods have been proposed in this field, most of which address linear models. In this study we […]

An appointment scheduling framework to balance the production of blood bags from donation

Seminer

Abstract: Blood is fundamental in several care treatments and surgeries, and plays a crucial role in the health care system. It is a limited resource, as it can be produced only by donors and its shelf life is short; thus, the blood donation (BD) system aims at providing adequate supply of blood bags to transfusion centers and hospitals. An effective […]

Determining collusion opportunities in deregulated electricity markets

Seminer

Abstract: The primal goal of deregulated electricity markets is to attain perfect competition among generation companies. Yet, a deregulated market is still prone to threats that may disrupt the competition. While the independent system operator, responsible for administering the electricity markets, aims to provide the consumer with the lowest possible electricity price, lack of competition may increase prices. We use […]

A Fuzzy Approach for Modeling Human Mortality and Fertility

Seminer

Abstract: Modeling and forecasting human mortality and fertility are significant research topics in several disciplines because these demographic rates are fundamental in financial planning and social policy decisions. Among various techniques, Lee Carter (LC) model is one of the most popular stochastic method in human mortality and fertility modeling. The original LC method for mortality modeling was fuzzified to eliminate […]
