Generalized adaptive partition-based method for two-stage stochastic linear programs with fixed recourse.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Mathematical Programming. Nov2022, Vol. 196 Issue 1/2, p755-774. 20p.

Abstract: We present a method to solve two-stage stochastic linear programming problems with fixed recourse when the uncertainty space can have either discrete or continuous distributions. Given a partition of the uncertainty space, the method is addressed to so...

Dynamic probabilistic constraints under continuous random distributions.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Mathematical Programming. Nov2022, Vol. 196 Issue 1/2, p1065-1096. 32p.

Abstract: The paper investigates analytical properties of dynamic probabilistic constraints (chance constraints). The underlying random distribution is supposed to be continuous. In the first part, a general multistage model with decision rules depending on past...

Estimation of the scale parameter of a family of distributions using a newly derived minimal sufficient statistic.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Communications in Statistics: Theory & Methods. 2022, Vol. 51 Issue 22, p7929-7962. 34p.

Abstract: A new class of statistics obtained by ordering the absolute values of the observations arising from absolutely continuous distributions which are symmetrically distributed about zero is introduced in this paper. The statistics generated by the above me...

Testing the effectiveness of debiasing techniques to reduce overprecision in the elicitation of subjective continuous probability distributions.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): European Journal of Operational Research. Jan2023, Vol. 304 Issue 2, p661-675. 15p.

Abstract: • Overprecision is a ubiquitous bias in risk and decision analysis. • Several debiasing tools have been proposed but they lack a systematic comparison. • We compare three tools for debiasing overprecision and two elicitation protocols. • Auto stretchin...

The polynomial-exponential distribution: a continuous probability model allowing for occurrence of zero values.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Communications in Statistics: Simulation & Computation. 2022, Vol. 51 Issue 8, p4581-4606. 26p.

Abstract: This paper deals with a new two-parameter lifetime distribution with increasing, decreasing and constant hazard rate. This distribution allows the occurrence of zero values and involves the exponential, linear exponential and other combinations of Weib...

Developing an adaptable sequential probability ratio test applicable for lifetime analysis of different continuous distributions.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Quality Technology & Quantitative Management. Jul2022, Vol. 19 Issue 4, p511-530. 20p.

Abstract: It is commonly discussed by the quality/reliability engineers that acceptance sampling plans and life testing schemes designed using the concept of sequential probability ratio test (SPRT) can effectively decrease the cost and time of the experiment/in...

Radial Symmetry Does Not Preclude Condorcet Cycles If Different Voters Weight the Issues Differently.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Economies. Jul2022, Vol. 10 Issue 7, pN.PAG-N.PAG. 17p.

Abstract: Radial symmetry, by our definition, is a precise condition on continuous ideal-point distributions, rarely if ever found exactly in practice, that is similar to the classical 1967 symmetry condition of Plott but pertains to an infinite electorate; the ...

Committed versus contingent pricing under cost uncertainty.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Naval Research Logistics. Aug2022, Vol. 69 Issue 5, p734-745. 12p.

Abstract: In practice, managers often face a trade‐off of choosing between committed and contingent pricing under cost uncertainty because contingent pricing may increase the firm's profit but may decrease consumer surplus and market share. This article compares...

Usual stochastic and reversed hazard orders of parallel systems with independent heterogeneous components.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Communications in Statistics: Theory & Methods. 2022, Vol. 51 Issue 14, p4781-4806. 26p.

Abstract: In this paper, we present some new ordering properties between two parallel systems comprising general independent heterogeneous components. More precisely, let X 1 , ⋯ , X n and Y 1 , ⋯ , Y n be independent non-negative random variables with X i ∼ F (...

Two-component generalized bent-cable models.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Communications in Statistics: Theory & Methods. 2022, Vol. 51 Issue 13, p4464-4475. 12p.

Abstract: This paper presents an innovative Bayesian method for assessing the status and progression of HIV infection using biomarkers such as the CD4 count and viral load variables. A distribution of viral loads in subjects starting antiretroviral treatment and...
