The thesis establishes a general optimization problem identified at Kronborstens inventory routine. The identified problem is to find the optimal mix between products in the finished goods inventory, which minimizes the expected time until delivery.

The proposed model assumes that orders and manufacturing follow a stochastic process. With these assumptions the inventory and manufacturing are represented as several independent Markov processes. From the stationary distribution of these processes a function was identified for the expected time until delivery for a given solution. The identified function had convex properties which made it possible to solve the optimization problem using the marginal allocation algorithm.

The mathematical problem is followed by a chapter about the costs related to storage. The purpose of this chapter is to help Kronborsten to valuate their options and consequences of strategical decisions about the inventory levels.

The fact that companies should work actively towards sustainability and accountability is today a necessity rather than a choice. The purpose of this study is to research responsible investment (RI) and portfolio performance. To examine this relationship the study focuses on ESG where its dimensions will be included jointly through optimization, discussion and conclusion. The report outlines how ESG can be integrated into the investment process, but the weight of the study addresses the discussion of a portfolio's performance at the inclusion of ESG. Methods used are Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) combined with the implementation of ESG according to "best-in-class". The results of the study lead towards the conclusion that ESG in addition to its positive effects, provided an accurate assessment, on sustainability also is financially arguable for investors.

The customers of the restaurant experience long waiting times during lunchtime, which is a problem Vapiano Sturegatan recognises. The purpose of this report is to suggest and analyse possible improvements of the queueing system in order to reduce this problem.

The current queuing system was approximated with markovian queuing models. Both an M/M/2-and an M/M/8-approach were considered, which of the M/M/2-model was deemed most reliable. The expected time in the system was calculated for different modications of Vapiano Sturegatan's current queuing system setup. They led to the conclusion that adding capacity to every serving station would be the best improvement to their current system, instead of adding an extra station. Furthermore, other queuing systems are considered and analysed from a customer process perspective. To improve the flow of customers in the restaurant, this report suggests an electronic queuing system. As long as the suggested system is implemented with careful planning and evaluation, the advantages of the electronic system exceed the benefit of simplicity of the current queuing system.

This thesis will be delivered to Vapiano Sturegatan. The authors hope that the results can beneficial in the planning of future restaurants and changes of the queuing system.

The main purpose of the work was to compare the following three types of finite elements for the above topology optimization problems: Four node square elements with bilinear shape functions, nine node square elements with quadratic shape functions, and six node hexagonal elements with Wachspress shape functions. The SIMP approach (Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization) was used to model the topology optimization problem for different load and support conditions, and the method of moving asymptotes (MMA) was used to solve the formulated optimization problems. On the considered test problems, it turned out that the results obtained by using six node hexagonal elements were in general better than the corresponding results using nine node square elements which in turn were better than the results using four node square elements. The price paid for the improvements were increased computation times.

More specifically, they allow reducing the energy cost for the industrial plants by dealing with energy-availability fluctuations.

In this context, efficient frameworks for scheduling with energy awareness have been studied and showed potential to reduce the overall energy bill for energy-intensive industries, for instance stainless steel and paper plants. Those frameworks usually combine scheduling and energy optimization into one monolithic system. This work investigates the possibility of integrating the two systems by specific exchange of signals, while keeping the scheduling model separated from the energy-cost optimization model. Such integration means that the pre-existent schedulers and energy optimizers could be easily modified and reused without re-implementing the whole new system.

Two industrial problems with different scheduling approaches are studied. The first problem is about pulp and paper production which uses the Resource Task Network (RTN) scheduling approach. The second one is about stainless steel production which is based on a bi-level heuristic implementation of an improved energy-aware scheduler. This work presents the decomposition methods that are available in literature and their application to the two industrial problems. Besides an improvement in the RTN approach for handling storages, this thesis describes a prototype implementation of the energy-aware RTN scheduler for paper and pulp production. Furthermore, this work investigates the performance of the application of different decomposition methods on different problem instances.

The numerical case studies show that even though the decomposition decreases the solution quality compared to the monolithic system, it still gives good solutions within an acceptable duration with the advantage of having two separate pre-existent systems which are simply exchanging signals.

Indeed, due to its eÿciency in term of mass consumption, the actors of the space industries see in this piece of technology a means to manufacture lighter satellites and to launch them at lower cost. To face with this new market, industries need to develop new tools to handle these satellites and their missions. This report will elaborate on the methods used to compute maneuvers for all-electric spacecraft.

One of the main phases during satellite operations is maneuvering to ensure on the one hand a correct configuration to achieve the mission and on the other hand the integrity of the satellite. The present work is focused on the computation of the orbital maneuvers during the early phase of the mission: orbit raising. Due to the characteristics of electric propulsion, an overall approach provided by the application of the optimal control theory is required to compute these maneuvers performed by low-thrust engines. This report will develop the use of an indirect method based on the Pontryagin minimum principle. Two types of problems related to the constraints during the space missions are presented. Because electric maneuvers are longer than chemical maneuvers, it is usually necessary to seek to minimize the duration of a maneuver. The second interesting performance is the remaining propellant mass to achieve the mission: therefore, the minimization of the mass consumption during the maneuver is the second performance considered in the report.

During the internship, a JAVA implementation of the resolution of these two problems has been done. The report will present the preliminary results as well as the encountered difficulties and some possible solutions.

Solving such problems may be challenging and time consuming when the aim is to find the most preferred Pareto optimal solution.

In this study, we propose a method where we use an advanced clustering technique to reveal essential characteristics of the approximation of the Pareto optimal set, which has been generated beforehand. Thus, the decision maker (DM) is involved only after the most time consuming computation is finished. After the initiation phase, a moderate number of cluster prototypes projected to the Pareto optimal set is presented to the DM to be studied. This allows him/her to rapidly gain an overall understanding of the main characteristics of the problem without placing too much cognitive load on the DM. Furthermore, we also suggest some ways of applying our approach to different types of problems and demonstrate it with an example related to internal combustion engine design.

The problem describes the task of relocating the cars to areas with the largest demand. The chauffeurs who relocate the cars are transported by shuttle buses. Each car is assigned an individual relocation utility. The objective is to find shuttle tours that maximise in a given time the relocation utility while balancing the distribution of the cars. The VRLPOWCS is formulated as a mixed integer linear program. Since this problem is NP

*-complete*we choose the branch-and-cut method to solve it. Using additional cutting planes – which exploit the structure of the VRLPOWCS – we enhance this method. Tests on real data show that this extended algorithm can solve the VRLPOWCS faster.PrimeFaces.cw("Panel","tryPanel",{id:"formSmash:items:resultList:8:j_idt978:0:abstractPanel",widgetVar:"tryPanel",toggleable:true,toggleSpeed:500,collapsed:false,toggleOrientation:"vertical",closable:true,closeSpeed:500}); 10.

For a given set of beams, the fluences of the beamlets can drastically affect the quality of the treatment plan, and thus it is critical to obtain good fluence maps for radiation delivery. Although several approaches have been shown to yield good solutions to the FMO problem, these solutions are not guaranteed to be optimal. This shortcoming can be attributed to either optimization model complexity or properties of the algorithms used to solve the optimization model. We present a convex FMO formulation and an interior point algorithm that yields an optimal treatment plan in seconds, making it a viable option for clinical applications.

Radiation therapy is administered in multiple so-called daily fractions to allow for healthy tissue to recover from damage caused by the treatment. Before the advent of IMRT, the treatment was designed to ensure a constant dose to cells in the target (the areas in the patient where cancerous cells are present or suspected). In the presence of multiple targets with different prescribed doses, this design meant that treatment had to be delivered in a sequence of unequal fractions, one per prescription dose level. For example, in case of two targets treatment would consist of an initial plan aimed at treating both targets to a lower total dose, followed by a so-called boost plan aimed at delivering the additional dose at the target with higher prescribed dose. In contrast, IMRT treatment plans are often delivered with equal treatment plan for each fraction, which means that the dose per fraction cannot be the same for all targets. The important problem of restoring traditional fractionation to IMRT treatments has not yet received much attention in the literature. In this paper we propose a new optimization model that explicitly restores fractionation into the FMO problem, yielding an optimal set of fluence maps for each fraction. We illustrate the capabilities of our approach on clinical head-and-neck cancer cases.

To obtain a price efficient combination of underlying assets a function that calculates the basket option price is needed, for further use in an optimization model. The closed-form basket option pricing is a great challenge, due to the lack of a distribution describing the augmented stochastic price process. Many types of approaches to price an basket option has been made. In this thesis, an analytical approximation of the basket option price has been used, where the analytical approximation aims to develop a method to describe the augmented price process. The approximation is done by moment matching, i.e. matching the first two moments of the real distribution of the basket option with an lognormal distribution. The obtained price function is adjusted and used as the objective function in the optimization model.

Furthermore, since the goal is to obtain en equally weighted basket option, the appropriate class of optimization models to use are binary optimization problems. This kind of optimization model is in general hard to solve - especially for increasing dimensions. Three different continuous relaxations of the binary problem has been applied in order to obtain continuous problems, that are easier to solve.

The results shows that the purpose of this thesis is fulfilled when formulating and solving the optimization problem - both as an binary and continuous nonlinear optimization model. Moreover, the results from a Monte Carlo simulation for correlated stochastic processes shows that the moment matching technique with a lognormal distribution is a good approximation for pricing a basket option.

The critical variable for these decisions is the distance between a point on one seat and the same point on the next seat. Critical variables that have small values , i.e. short distance, means more rows of seats and thus higher profits. Any unused space is an expensive waste due to the fact that the difference between profit and loss for a given flight can be as little as less than a cost of a seat.

The purpose of this thesis is to develop a mathematical model to find the optimal seat allocation between classes in an airplane. The modeling shall be performed so that the revenues for the airlines and usage of the surface of the cabin are maximized and yet meet demand. This thesis also aims to investigate which different market strategies of airlines there are and how these affect the seat allocation.

The report shows that the revenue and demand are not the only factors that affect the optimal number of seats for a class, but that there are also external factors that may play a role. The model's ranking in reality is difficult to assess because of the lack of realistic and reliable data that can be used for a basis for decisions

This general problem is studied in this paper, for some combinations of F, d, n, and the ways one can state the problem mathematically. Some numerical optimization methods are suggested and tested, both on the point separation problem and the closely related circle packing problem. The results are compared with some known analytical results. The main conclusion is that the suggested numerical methods are useful general tools to obtain optimal solutions to the considered problems.

The topology poses particularly challenging problems since it is unusually complex and the circuit parameters are such that the dynamic coupling between the AC and DC sides cannot be ignored. The paper proposes a model predictive control scheme for direct voltage control which circumvents the bandwidth limitations associated with classical cascade control. The stability and harmonic properties of the resulting closed loop system are investigated using new tools for the analysis of switched systems.

In the introduction we give an overview of pulse-modulated systems and provide a few examples of such systems. Furthermore, we introduce the so-called dynamic phasor model which is used as a basis for analysis in two of the appended papers. We also introduce the harmonic transfer function and finally we provide a summary of the appended papers.

The first paper considers stability analysis of a class of pulse-width modulated systems based on a discrete time model. The systems considered typically have periodic solutions. Stability of a periodic solution is equivalent to stability of a fixed point of a discrete time model of the system dynamics.

Conditions for global and local exponential stability of the discrete time model are derived using quadratic and piecewise quadratic Lyapunov functions. A griding procedure is used to develop a systematic method to search for the Lyapunov functions.

The second paper considers the dynamic phasor model as a tool for stability analysis of a general class of pulse-modulated systems. The analysis covers both linear time periodic systems and systems where the pulse modulation is controlled by feedback. The dynamic phasor model provides an $\textbf{L}_2$-equivalent description of the system dynamics in terms of an infinite dimensional dynamic system. The infinite dimensional phasor system is approximated via a skew truncation. The truncated system is used to derive a systematic method to compute time periodic quadratic Lyapunov functions.

The third paper considers the dynamic phasor model as a tool for harmonic analysis of a class of pulse-width modulated systems. The analysis covers both linear time periodic systems and non-periodic systems where the switching is controlled by feedback. As in the second paper of the thesis, we represent the switching system using the L_2-equivalent infinite dimensional system provided by the phasor model. It is shown that there is a connection between the dynamic phasor model and the harmonic transfer function of a linear time periodic system and this connection is used to extend the notion of harmonic transfer function to describe periodic solutions of non-periodic systems. The infinite dimensional phasor system is approximated via a square truncation. We assume that the response of the truncated system to a periodic disturbance is also periodic and we consider the corresponding harmonic balance equations. An approximate solution of these equations is stated in terms of a harmonic transfer function which is analogous to the harmonic transfer function of a linear time periodic system. The aforementioned assumption is proved to hold for small disturbances by proving the existence of a solution to a fixed point equation. The proof implies that for small disturbances, the approximation is good.

Finally, the fourth paper considers control synthesis for switched mode DC-DC converters. The synthesis is based on a sampled data model of the system dynamics. The sampled data model gives an exact description of the converter state at the switching instances, but also includes a lifted signal which represents the inter-sampling behavior. Within the sampled data framework we consider H-infinity control design to achieve robustness to disturbances and load variations. The suggested controller is applied to two benchmark examples; a step-down and a step-up converter. Performance is verified in both simulations and in experiments.

The dynamic phasor model is a powerful tool for exploring cyclic properties of dynamic systems. It is shown that there is a connection between the dynamic phasor model and the harmonic transfer function of a linear time periodic system and this connection is used to extend the notion of harmonic transfer function to describe periodic solutions of non-periodic systems.

The DPM exploits the periodicity of the system by expanding the system state in a Fourier series over a moving time window. This results in an L-2-equivalent representation in terms of an infinite-dimensional LTI system which describes the evolution of time varying Fourier coefficients. To prove stability, we consider quadratic time-periodic Lyapunov candidates. Using the DPM, the corresponding time-periodic Lyapunov inequality can be stated as a finite dimensional inequality and the Lyapunov function can be found by solving a linear matrix inequality.

The scheduling was performed as a possible remedy for problems caused by overcrowded finished goods warehouse. Based on the scheduling, conclusions were made on whether the existing two-shift production is sufficient or if an additional night shift should be introduced. In parallel, an empirical and theoretical analysis on the perceived effects of night shift work on employees was conducted.

For the optimization, mixed integer programming was used to model the production context through a discrete time scheduling lot-sizing model developed in this thesis. The model developed and implemented on Arla Foods AB contributes to the research field through its feature of relatively low complexity enabling scheduling of extensive production systems when applied in industrial contexts where products may be categorized.

The thesis concludes that mathematical production scheduling can solve Arla Foods AB’s production problematics and suggests reallocation of the existing shifts for the purpose of reduced costs and acceptable warehouse levels. This reallocation would incur production during inconvenient hours whereas management remedies reducing negative effects of night shift work are identified.

The method is often used to smooth noisy data and for doing path planning. In this bachelor

thesis calculus of variations will be used to derive a formula for finding an optimal curve to fit a

set of data points. We evaluate a cost function (defined on the set of all curves

f on the interval

[

a; b]) given by F(f) =

=1(f(xi) yi)2. The integral term represents the

smoothness of the curve, the interpolation error is given by the summation term and

> 0 is

defined as the interpolation parameter. An ideal curve minimizes the interpolation error and

is relatively smooth. This is problematic since a smooth function generally has a large interpolation

error when doing curve fitting, and therefore the interpolation parameter

is needed

to decide how much consideration should be given to each attribute. For the cost function

F

a larger value of

decreases the interpolation error of the curve. The analytical calculations

performed made it possible to construct a

Matlab program, that could be used to solve the

minimization problem. In the result part some examples are presented for different values of

The conclusion is that a larger value of the interpolation parameter

is generally needed when

using more data points and if the points are closely placed on the x-axis. Further on, a method

called Ordinary Cross Validation (OCV) is evaluated to find an optimal value of

. This method

gave good results, except for the case when the points could almost be fitted with a straight line.

The techniques that rapid branching are based on are presented. The important aspect of rapid branching are discussed and then the algorithm is applied to some artificial problems. It is shown that rapid branching can be both faster and slower than a standard integer solver depending on the problem instance. For the most realistic set of the examined instances, rapid branching turned out to be faster than the standard integer solver and produce satisficingly high quality solutions.

In the first two, different cooperative surveillance problems are considered. The second two consider different aspects of the trajectory planning problem, while the last two deal with observer design for mobile robotic and Euler-Lagrange systems respectively.In Papers A and B, a combinatorial optimization based framework to cooperative surveillance missions using multiple Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) is proposed. In particular, Paper A considers the the Minimum Time UGV Surveillance Problem (MTUSP) while Paper B treats the Connectivity Constrained UGV Surveillance Problem (CUSP). The minimum time formulation is the following. Given a set of surveillance UGVs and a polyhedral area, find waypoint-paths for all UGVs such that every point of the area is visible from a point on a waypoint-path and such that the time for executing the search in parallel is minimized. The connectivity constrained formulation extends the MTUSP by additionally requiring the induced information graph to be kept recurrently connected at the time instants when the UGVs perform the surveillance mission. In these two papers, the NP-hardness of both these problems are shown and decomposition techniques are proposed that allow us to find an approximative solution efficiently in an algorithmic manner.Paper C addresses the problem of designing a real time, high performance trajectory planner for an aerial vehicle that uses information about terrain and enemy threats, to fly low and avoid radar exposure on the way to a given target. The high-level framework augments Receding Horizon Control (RHC) with a graph based terminal cost that captures the global characteristics of the environment. An important issue with RHC is to make sure that the greedy, short term optimization does not lead to long term problems, which in our case boils down to two things: not getting into situations where a collision is unavoidable, and making sure that the destination is actually reached. Hence, the main contribution of this paper is to present a trajectory planner with provable safety and task completion properties. Direct methods for trajectory optimization are traditionally based on a priori temporal discretization and collocation methods. In Paper D, the problem of adaptive node distribution is formulated as a constrained optimization problem, which is to be included in the underlying nonlinear mathematical programming problem. The benefits of utilizing the suggested method for online trajectory optimization are illustrated by a missile guidance example.In Paper E, the problem of active observer design for an important class of non-uniformly observable systems, namely mobile robotic systems, is considered. The set of feasible configurations and the set of output flow equivalent states are defined. It is shown that the inter-relation between these two sets may serve as the basis for design of active observers. The proposed observer design methodology is illustrated by considering a unicycle robot model, equipped with a set of range-measuring sensors. Finally, in Paper F, a geometrically intrinsic observer for Euler-Lagrange systems is defined and analyzed. This observer is a generalization of the observer proposed by Aghannan and Rouchon. Their contractivity result is reproduced and complemented by a proof that the region of contraction is infinitely thin. Moreover, assuming a priori bounds on the velocities, convergence of the observer is shown by means of Lyapunov's direct method in the case of configuration manifolds with constant curvature.

We first formulate the problem, and show that it is in fact a generalization of the Multiple Traveling Salesmen Problem (MTSP), which is known to be NP-hard. We then propose a solution that decomposes the problem into three subproblems. The first is to find a maximal convex covering of the search area. Most results on static coverage use disjoint partitions of the search area, e.g. triangulation, to convert the continuous sensor positioning problem into a discrete one. However, by a simple example, we show that a highly overlapping set of maximal convex sets is better suited for minimum time coverage. The second subproblem is a combinatorial assignment and ordering of the sets in the cover. Since Tabu search algorithms are known to perform well on various routing problems, we use it as a part of our proposed solution. Finally, the third subproblem utilizes a particular shortest path sub-routine in order to find the vehicle paths, and calculate the overall objective function used in the Tabu search. The proposed algorithm is illustrated by a number of simulation examples.

The second problem extends the first by additionally requiring the induced information graph to be connected at the time instants when the UGVs perform the surveillance mission, i.e., when they gather and transmit sensor data. In the context of the second problem, we also introduce and utilize the notion of recurrent connectivity, which is a significantly more flexible connectivity constraint than, e.g., the 1-hop connectivity constraints and use it to discuss consensus filter convergence for the group of UGVs.

Given a set of surveillance UGVs and a polyhedral area, find waypoint-paths for all UGVs such that every point of the area is visible from a point on a path and such that the time for executing the search in parallel is minimized.

The connectivity constrained formulation extends the first by additionally requiring that the information graph induced by the sensors is connected at the time instants when the UGVs stop to perform the surveillance task. The second formulation is relevant to situation when mutual visibility is needed either to transmit the sensor data being gathered, or to protect the team from hostile persons trying to approach the stationary UGVs.

The control objective is to use information about terrain and enemy threats to fly low and avoid radar exposure on the way to a given target. The proposed algorithm builds on the well known approach of Receding Horizon Control (RHC) combined with a terminal cost, calculated from a graph representation of the environment. Using a novel safety maneuver, and under an assumption on the maximal terrain inclination, we are able to prove safety as well as task completion. The safety maneuver is incorporated in the short term optimization, which is performed using Nonlinear Programming (NLP). Some key characteristics of the trajectory planner are highlighted through simulations.

The high-level framework augments on-line receding horizon control with an off-line computed terminal cost that captures the global characteristics of the environment, as well as any possible mission objectives. The first part of the paper is devoted to the single vehicle case while the second part considers the problem of simultaneous arrival of multiple aerial vehicles. The main contribution of the first part is two-fold. Firstly, by augmenting a so called safety maneuver at the end of the planned trajectory, this paper extends previous results by addressing provable safety properties in a 3D setting. Secondly, assuming initial feasibility, the planning method presented is shown to have finite time task completion. Moreover, a quantitative comparison between the two competing objectives of optimality and computational tractability is made.

The high-level framework augments on-line receding horizon control with an off-line computed terminal cost that captures the global characteristics of the environment, as well as any possible mission objectives. The first part of the paper is devoted to the single vehicle case while the second part considers the problem of simultaneous arrival of multiple aerial vehicles. The main contribution of the first part is two-fold. Firstly, by augmenting a so called safety maneuver at the end of the planned trajectory, this paper extends previous results by addressing provable safety properties in a 3 D setting. Secondly, assuming initial feasibility, the planning method presented is shown to have finite time task completion. Moreover, a quantitative comparison between the two competing objectives of optimality and computational tractability is made. Finally, some other key characteristics of the trajectory planner, such as ability to minimize threat exposure and robustness, are highlighted through simulations. As for the simultaneous arrival problem considered in the second part, by using a time-scale separation principle, we are able to adopt standard Laplacian control to a consensus problem which is neither unconstrained, nor first order.

The Swedish household’s debt has steadily increased and the primary cause is mortgages loans, used to fund the purchase of a real property. Because of a period of rising home prices, Swedes are mortgaged more than ever [1]. If interest rates go up there is an increased risk of not managing the interest charge which is the greatest expense for many households.

However, there is an absence in the debate of the importance of efficient and safe mortgages. By means of the introduced dynamic method, this thesis optimizes the allocation of adjustable-rate mortgages, using both historical and future cases. In the forecasting case, expected interest charge and risk are being minimized. More specifically, the method consider three levels of risk which all values expected interest charge and risk differently. Further, the goal is to apply the dynamic method for decision support in reality and also commercialize as a business idea.

Modeling mortgage as a network flow is essential for the dynamic method. This way enables analysis of mortgages during a period of time which is necessary for determining an optimal allocation of adjustable-rate mortgages. The result from the historical case shows that shorter adjustment periods have been more favorable. Though, to an extent lower than expected – only during seven out of the last seventeen years. In addition, the results from the forecasting case indicate that it is advantageous to choose longer adjustment periods. Finally introduces a business model for the startup company, Looptime AB, of which business idea is toadminister mortgages for households, residents’ associations and non-financial companies.

As professional gamers train to increase their skill, new tools to help the training might become very important. Eye tracking can give an extra training dimension for the gamer. The aim of this master thesis is to develop a Visual Attention Index for DotA 2, that is, a number that reflects the player’s visual attention during a game. Interviews with gamers combined with data collection from gamers with eye trackers and statistical methods were used to find relevant metrics to use in the work. The results show that linear regression did not work very well on the data set, however, since there were a low number of test persons, further data collection and testing needs to be done before any statistically significant conclusions can be drawn. Support Vector Machines (SVM) was also used and turned out to be an effective way of separating better players from less good players. A new SVM method, based on linear programming, was also tested and found to be efficient and easy to apply on the given data set.

Unfortunately this criterion is not convex over the most general classes of rational spectra. In this work it will be shown that divergence minimization is equivalent to a costrained entropy minimization problem, whose concave structure can be exploited in order to guarantee global convergence in the most general case.

Specifically we focus on computing the solution that minimize the Kullback-Leibler criterion. Several strategies to find such optimum via descent methods are considered and their convergence studied. In particular a parameterization with better numerical properties is derived from a spectral factorization problem. Such parameterization, in addition to guaranteeing descent methods to be globally convergent, it appears to be very reliable in practice.

This thesis aims to expand the theory of such methods in three different directions. The first main contribution concerns the practical applicability. From this point of view various solving algorithm and their properties are considered. This study lead to identify a globally convergent method with excellent numerical properties. The second main contribution is the introduction of an extended interpolation problem that allows to model ARMA spectra without any explicit information of zero’s positions. To this end it was necessary for practical reasons to consider an approximated interpolation insted. Finally, the third main contribution is the application to some problems such as graphical model identification and ARMA spectral approximation.

glycolysis of in silico models of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Such un-

controlled models could reach unstable steady states that are unlikely

to occur in vivo. Little work has previously been done to examine

stability of such models.

The glycolysis is modeled as a system of nonlinear dierential equa-

tions. This is done by using rate equations describing the rate of change

in concentration of each metabolite involved in glycolysis. By lineariz-

ing this system around dierent equilibria and calculating the eigen-

values of the associated jacobian matrices the stability of the steady

states can be determined. Additionally perturbation analysis adds fur-

ther insight into the stability of the steady state.

Given the large range of possible initial conditions which result in

dierent steady states, a physiologically feasible one, as well as the

environment around it, is chosen to be the subject of this study. A

steady state is stable if all the eigenvalues of the Jacobian matrix are

negative. The model created by Teusink et al, and expanded upon by

Pritchard et, for the glycolysis in S.cerevisiae is used as the primary

model of the study.

The steady state does not have strictly negative eigenvalues: Two

of them are very close to zero, with one positive, within error tolerance

of our numerical methods. This means that linear analysis cannot

determine whether the steady state is stable. The whole nonlinear

system has to be considered. After performing perturbation analysis

we conclude that the steady state is most likely stable in the Lyapunov

sense.

Arbetet är uppdelat i en kvantitativ del samt en kvalitativ del.

Den kvantitativa delen av arbetet besvarade den matematiska frågeställningen där kön var modellerad enligt ett M|M|c-‐system med Poissonfördelade ankomstintensiteter samt exponentialfördelade betjäningsintensiteter. Resultatet var baserat på data från januari 2015. I första hand reglerades antal betjäningsstationer för att nå en förväntad kötid under nio minuter. I andra hand reglerades betjäningsintensiteten, om kötiden ännu inte uppnåtts. Den kvalitativa delen av arbetet baserades på ett teoretiskt ramverk gällande Customer Relationship Management samt intervjuer med Avdelningschefen och Kundrelationschefen på IKEA Kungens Kurva. Arbetets slutsats baserades på resultat från både den kvantitativa och den kvalitativa delen av arbetet.

Det matematiska resultatet presenterar antalet öppna betjäningsstationer som krävdes timme för timme under vardagar respektive helger för att nå en förväntad kötid under nio minuter. Slutsatsen är att i de fall där den förväntade kötiden var strax över nio minuter kommer detta inte påverka kundrelationen, så länge en god betjäning ges, medan det matematiska resultatet bör tillämpas om den förväntade kötiden är långt över nio minuter.

This would particularly benefit high altitude solar UAV, which typically have a very limited payload. Such landings would however require a precise and decoupled control of the UAV’s altitude and speed. In this thesis, a small UAV is modelled, and a flight control system suitable for such landings is developed.

The aerodynamic properties of the UAV were estimated using the vortex lattice method. Propeller performance data was obtained from the manufacturer and used in the propulsion model. The complete UAV model was validated using data from test flights. A comparison of period and damping of the dynamic modes showed a good agreement (<10% error) with the flight data, except for the phugoid damping, which was too low in the model.

The model was used to design two flight control systems, one consisting of three SISO loops for altitude, airspeed and course; and another using a TECS-based controller for airspeed and altitude. Extensive testing in simulation and flight revealed a superior performance of the TECS-based controller, especially in the ability to decouple altitude and airspeed responses.

Nonetheless are companies that are interested in outsourcing parts of their logistic operation not always certain which actors to choose. A company that faces this particular decision is candle manufacturer Delsbo Candle. This project explores Delsbo Candle’s existing organisation structure and it’s conditions and limitations, followed by a presentation of a global optimal solution from a cost-effective perspective. The global optimal solution consists of using three third-party logistics actors situated in Stockholm, Norrköping och Jönköping with a minimal transport and handling cost of 45 986 kr a month.

Furthermore the project explores the concurrence between Delsbo Candle’s organisation structure and the effects of outsourcing from an organisational perspective. The analysis shows that there is a risk that Delsbo Candle will be exposed to delay in decision making and loss of strategically important knowledg
