Scheduling cooperative emergency response: or how the meek shall overcome the greedy
We consider the problem of scheduling emergency responders to geospatially located finite duration temporally bounded tasks. We consider two different schedulers, Greedy and Mee...

Genetic Algorithm to Set Active Contour
Active contours, very popular in image segmentation, suffer from delicate adjustments of many parameters. We propose to carry out these adjustments using genetic algorithm. Here an...

Generating Small Combinatorial Test Suites to Cover Input-Output Relationships
In this paper, we consider a problem that arises in black box testing: generating small test suites (i.e., sets of test cases) where the combinations that have to be covered are s...

Cycle Cover with Short Cycles
Cycle covering is a well-studied problem in computer science. In this paper, we develop approximation algorithms for variants of cycle covering problems which bound the size and/o...

A Greedy Algorithm for Capacity-Constrained Surrogate Placement in CDNs
One major factor that heavily affects the performance of a content distribution network (CDN) is placement of the surrogates. Previous works take a network-centric approach and con...

Test prioritization for pairwise interaction coverage
Interaction testing is widely used in screening for faults. In software testing, it provides a natural mechanism for testing systems to be deployed on a variety of hardware and so...

Constructing interaction test suites with greedy algorithms
Combinatorial approaches to testing are used in several fields, and have recently gained momentum in the field of software testing through software interaction testing. One-test...
