Fuzzy multiple objective fractional optimization in rough approximation and its aptness to the fixed-charge transportation problem

This article presents a multiple objective fractional fixed-charge transportation problem (MFFTP) in a rough decision-making framework. A transformation procedure is modified to convert non-linear multi-objective transportation problem to its linear version. The parameters of the designed model are considered to be fuzzy. We employ separate kinds of fuzzy scale, i.e., possibility, credibility and necessity measures, to deal with the fuzzy parameters. Using the fuzzy chance-constrained rough approximation (FCRA) technique, we extract the more preferable optimal solution from our suggested MFFTP. The initial result is compared with that of the robust ranking (RR) technique. We also use the theory of rough sets for expanding as well as dividing the feasible domain of the MFFTP to accommodate more information by considering two approximations. Employing these approximations, we introduce two variants, namely, the lower approximation (LA) and the upper approximation (UA), of the suggested MFFTP. Finally, by using these models, we provide the optimal solutions for our proposedproblem. We also associate our MFFTP with a real-world example to showcase its applicability as well as performance. Our core concept of this article is that it tackles an MFFTP using two separate kinds of uncertainty and expands its feasible domain for optimal solutions. Optimal solutions of the designed model (obtained from FCRA technique) belong to two separate regions, namely, "surely region"and "possible region". The optimal solution which belongs to the "surely region"is better (as these are minimum values) than the one in the "possible region"and other cases. An interpretation of our approach along with offers about the intended future research work are provided at last.

Analytical Pricing Formula Under Three-State Regime-Switching Model
Tekin, Özge; Uğur, Ömür; Mamon, Rogemar; Department of Financial Mathematics (2022-9-19)
Economic and financial data display diverse behavior at different time intervals due to their dynamics and stochastic nature. To build explanatory models, different time periods with similar characteristics can be grouped together under a single regime. In this study, it is assumed that the states of the economy follow a homogeneous first-order continuous-time finite-state hidden Markov chain process. We consider the valuation of European options in a three-state Markov switching extension of the Black-Sch...
Multinucleon transfer in Ni-58+Ni-60 and Ni-60+Ni-60 in a stochastic mean-field approach
Yilmaz, B.; Ayik, S.; Yılmaz, Osman; Umar, A. S. (2018-09-07)
The multinucleon exchange mechanism in Ni-58 + Ni-60 and Ni-60 + Ni-60 collisions is analyzed in the framework of the stochastic mean-field approach. The results of calculations are compared with the time-dependent random-phase approximation (TDRPA) calculations and the recent data of Ni-58 + Ni-60. A good description of the data and a relatively good agreement with the TDRPA calculations are found.
Stochastic optimization applied to self-financing portfolio: does bequest matter?
Gazioglu, Saziye; Bastiyali-Hayfavi, Azize (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
The article studies stochastic optimization of an intertemporal consumption model to allocate financial assets between risky and risk-free assets. We use a stochastic optimization technique, in which utility is maximized subject to a self-financing portfolio constraint. The papers in literature have estimated the errors of Euler equations using data from financial markets. It has been shown that it is sufficient to test the first order Euler equation implied by the model. However, they all assume a constant...
Multi–target implementation of a domain specific language for extended feature models
Demirtaş, Görkem; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2018)
Translation of feature models to constraint logic programs is an effective method to enable their automated analysis using existing constraint solvers. More flexibility can be offered for building and application of analysis operations on extended feature models by providing a syntax and mechanism for interfacing the host solver with user defined constraint predicates. These constraints, such as global constraints, can be provided by the constraint solver runtime or by the translator itself as a part of the...
Non-linear programming models for sector and policy analysis
Bauer, Siegfried; Kasnakoglu, Haluk (Elsevier BV, 1990-7)
This paper examines the basic problems of the mathematical programming models used for agricultural sector and policy analysis. Experience with traditional programming models shows that a considerable improvement in performance is possible by adequately incorporating non-linear relationships. Particular emphasis will be given to the calibration and validation problems involved in this type of model. With the help of the Turkish agricultural sector model it will be demonstrated that an empirical specificatio...
