A rate result for simulation optimization with conditional value-at-risk constraints
We study a stochastic optimization problem that has its roots in financial portfolio design. The problem has a specified deterministic objective function and constraints on the co...

New approaches for inference of unobservable queues
Many inference methods of queueing systems have been developed on the basis of Larson's QIE(queue inference engine) with the assumption of homogeneous Poisson arrivals. It in...
