Minimizing Total Earliness and Tardiness with Periodically Supplied Non-renewable Resource Profiles

We consider a special class of resource-constrained single machine scheduling problems. In the classical scheduling context, resource types are classi ed into renewable and non-renewable; however, a large variety of real-world problems may not fit into one of these classes, e.g., labor regulations in project scheduling, budget allocation to different phases of a construction project, and … Read more

Theorems of the Alternative for Conic Integer Programming

Farkas’ Lemma is a foundational result in linear programming, with implications in duality, optimality conditions, and stochastic and bilevel programming. Its generalizations are known as theorems of the alternative. There exist theorems of the alternative for integer programming and conic programming. We present theorems of the alternative for conic integer programming. We provide a nested … Read more
