An FPTAS for the Minimum Total Weighted Tardiness Problem with a Fixed Number of Distinct Due Dates
Given a sequencing of jobs on a single machine, each one with a weight, processing time, and a due date, the tardiness of a job is the time needed for its completion beyond its du...

Group sequencing around a common due date
The problem of scheduling groups of jobs on a single machine under the group technology assumption is studied. Jobs of the same group are processed contiguously and a sequence ind...

On the Robust Single Machine Scheduling Problem
The single machine scheduling problem with sum of completion times criterion (SS) can be solved easily by the Shortest Processing Time (SPT) rule. In the case of significant uncert...

Job Sequencing with Exponential Functions of Processing Times
We study single machine scheduling problems, where processing times of the jobs are exponential functions of their start times. For increasing functions, we prove strong NP-hardnes...

TCBB Scheme: Applications to Single Machine Job Sequencing Problems
Transpose-and-Cache Branch-and-Bound (TCBB) has shown promise in solving large single machine quadratic penalty problems. There exist other classes of single machine job sequencin...

Queueing models for single machine manufacturing systems with interruptions
Queueing theory is a well-known method for evaluating the performance of manufacturing systems. When we want to analyze the performance of a single machine, M/M/1 queues or approx...

Scalable and Parallel Reasoning in the Semantic Web
Abstract. The current state of the art regarding scalable reasoning consists of programs that run on a single machine. When the amount of data is too large, or the logic is too com...

Semi-clairvoyant Scheduling
In [2] it was shown that the obvious semi-clairvoyant generalization of the Shortest Processing Time is O(1)-competitive with respect to average stretch on a single machine. In [2...

A Hybrid Electromagnetism-Like Algorithm for Single Machine Scheduling Problem
Electromagnetism-like algorithm (EM) is a population-based meta-heuristic which has been proposed to solve continuous problems effectively. In this paper, we present a new meta-h...
