Our research has shown that schedules can be built mimicking a human scheduler by using a set of rules that involve domain knowledge. This chapter presents a Bayesian Optimization Algorithm (BOA)for the nurse scheduling problem that chooses such suit... Read More about BOA for nurse scheduling.

Qualitative analysis of complex modularized fault trees using binary decision diagrams (2006)
Journal Article

Fault tree analysis is commonly used in the reliability assessment of industrial systems. When complex systems are studied conventional methods can become computationally intensive and require the use of approximations. This leads to inaccuracies in...

Defensive realism and the Concert of Europe (2006)
Journal Article
Rendall, M. (2006). Defensive realism and the Concert of Europe. Review of International Studies, 32(3), doi:10.1017/S0260210506007145

Why do great powers expand? Offensive realist John Mearsheimer claims that states wage an eternal struggle for power, and that those strong enough to seek regional hegemony nearly always do. Mearsheimer's evidence, however, displays a selection bias.... Read More about Defensive realism and the Concert of Europe.

Effects of radio-frequency fields on bacterial cell membranes and nematode temperature-sensitive mutants (2006)

In this way rasterisation... Read More about Evaluating Invariances in Document Layout Functions.

Towards the systematic simplification of mechanistic models (2006)
Journal Article

Determining whether a model is parsimonious requires comparisons with alternative model formulations with diff... Read More about Towards the systematic simplification of mechanistic models.
