Consensus set maximization with guaranteed global optimality for robust geometry estimation
Finding the largest consensus set is one of the key ideas used by the original RANSAC for removing outliers in robust-estimation. However, because of its random and non-determinis...

Early Estimates of the Size of Branch-and-Bound Trees
This paper intends to show that the time needed to solve mixed integer programming problems by branch and bound can be roughly predicted early in the solution process. We construc...

Runway sequencing with holding patterns
We study a scheduling problem, motivated by air-traffic control, in which a set of aircrafts are about to land on a single runway. When coming close to the landing area of the air...
