We examine a model of a perfect competitive homogeneous good market with a network structure. Such a structure is typically important for energy resources: natural gas, oil and electricity. Local markets are connected by transmission lines with limited capacities and given cost functions for capacity increments. We consider the total welfare optimization problem and provide a method that determines optimal investments in the transmission system expansion for some types of the networks. In particular, we study the case where the market is divided into two submarkets with binding transmission line flow constraints between the submarkets. We obtain efficient algorithms for determination of the transmission systems optimal expansion. We conclude with the impact of the results and the outlook to future studies.


Effective optimization with weighted automata on decomposable trees
Ravve, E. V.; Volkovich, Z.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Informa UK Limited, 2014-01-02)
In this paper, we consider quantitative optimization problems on decomposable discrete systems. We restrict ourselves to labeled trees as the description of the systems and we use weighted automata on them as our computational model. We introduce a new kind of labeled decomposable trees, sum-like weighted labeled trees, and propose a method, which allows us to reduce the solution of an optimization problem, defined in a fragment of Weighted Monadic Second Order Logic, on such a tree to the solution of effec...
New approaches to regression by generalized additive models and continuous optimization for modern applications in finance, science and technology
Taylan, P.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Beck, A. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-10-01)
Generalized additive models belong to modern techniques frorn statistical learning, and are applicable in many areas of prediction, e.g. in financial mathamatics, computational biology, medicine, chemistry and environmental protection. In these models, the expectation of response is linked to the predictors via a link function. These models are fitted through local scoring algorithm using it scatterplot smoother as building blocks proposed by Hastie and Tibshirani (1987). In this article, we first give it s...
Mathematical contributions to dynamics and optimization of gene-environment networks
Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Tezel, Aysun; TAYLAN, PAKİZE; Soyler, Alper; Cetin, Mehmet (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
This article contributes to a further introduction of continuous optimization in the field of computational biology which is one of the most challenging and emerging areas of science, in addition to foundations presented and the state-of-the-art displayed in [C.A. Floudas and P.M. Pardalos, eds., Optimization in Computational Chemistry and Molecular Biology: Local and Global Approaches, Kluwer Academic Publishers, Boston, 2000]. Based on a summary of earlier works by the coauthors and their colleagues, it r...
Optimal pricing and ordering policy for non-instantaneous deteriorating items under inflation and customer returns
Ghoreishi, M.; Mirzazadeh, A.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Informa UK Limited, 2014-01-01)
This paper deals with an economic production quantity inventory model for non-instantaneous deteriorating items under inflationary conditions considering customer returns. We adopt a price-and time-dependent demand function. Also, the customer returns are considered as a function of both price and demand. The effects of time value of money are studied using the Discounted Cash Flow approach. The main objective is to determine the optimal selling price, the optimal replenishment cycles, and the optimal produ...
On dominance core and stable sets for cooperative ellipsoidal games
ALPARSLAN GÖK, Sırma Zeynep; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Informa UK Limited, 2013-10-01)
The allocation problem of rewards or costs is a central question for individuals and organizations contemplating cooperation under uncertainty. The involvement of uncertainty in cooperative games is motivated by the real world where noise in observation and experimental design, incomplete information and further vagueness in preference structures and decision-making play an important role. The theory of cooperative ellipsoidal games provides a new game theoretical angle and suitable tools for answering this...
