1Pricing by Timing: Innovating Broadband Data Plans
"... Abstract—Wireless Internet data usage is doubling every year. Users are consuming more of highbandwidth data applications, with usage concentrated on several peak hours in a day. We review many of the pricing schemes in practice today and analyze why they do not solve this problem of growing data t ..."

We develop an efficient way to compute the costminimizing timedependent prices for an ISP, using both a static sessionlevel model and a dynamic session model with stochastic arrivals. Our representation of the optimization problem yields a
and Distributed Demand: User Equilibrium, System Optimum, and Pricing
, 2011
"... The morning commute problem for a single bottleneck, introduced in Vickrey (1969), is extended to model mode choice in an urban area with timedependent demand. This extension recognizes that street space is shared by cars and public transit. It is assumed that transit is operated independently of t ..."

, then there is a unique user equilibrium. 2. If the transit agency chooses its headway and time of operation for the common good, then there is a unique system optimum. 3. Timedependent prices exist to achieve system optimum. Finally, it is also shown that results 2 and 3 apply to urban networks. 1
Pricedirected replenishment of subsets: Methodology and its application to inventory routing
 Manufacturing & Service Operations Management
, 2003
"... The idea of pricedirected control is to use an operating policy that exploits optimal dual prices from a mathematical programming relaxation of the underlying control problem. We apply it to the problem of replenishing inventory to subsets of products/locations, such as in the distribution of indus ..."

Minimal Disclosure in Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes
"... For security and efficiency reasons, most systems do not give the users a full access to their information. One key specification formalism for these systems are the so called Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDP for short), which have been extensively studied in several research c ..."

This optimization question gives rise to two different problems, whether we consider to minimize the worst case cost, or the average cost

Minimizing Building Electricity Costs in a Dynamic Power Market: Algorithms and Impact on Energy Conservation
"... Abstract—Energy is a global concern and the electricity bills nowadays are leading to unprecedented costs. Electricity price is marketbased and dynamic. In this paper, we investigate how to cut the electricity bills of commercial buildings in a dynamic power market. The building thermal systems (e ..."

Synthesis from Component Libraries with Costs
"... Abstract. Synthesis is the automated construction of a system from its specification. In real life, hardware and software systems are rarely constructed from scratch. Rather, a system is typically constructed from a library of components. Lustig and Vardi formalized this intuition and studied LTL s ..."

A key point is that while the quality cost is individual – the choices of a designer are independent of choices made by other designers that use the same library, pricing gives rise to a
Facetor: costdriven exploration of faceted query results
 In Proceedings of the 19th ACM CIKM conference, pg 719–728. ACM

"... Faceted navigation is being increasingly employed as an effective technique for exploring large query results on structured databases. This technique of mitigating informationoverload leverages metadata of the query results to provide users with facet conditions that can be used to progressively re ..."

Decentralized Coordination for Largescale Plugin Electric Vehicles in Smart Grid: An Efficient Realtime Price Approach
"... AbstractIt has been a hot research topic to research the incorporation of largescale PEVs into smart grid, such as the valleyfill strategy. However high charging rates under the valleyfill behavior may result in high battery degradation cost. Consequently in this paper, we novelly setup a frame ..."

We consider the tradeoff between inventory cost, direct shipment cost, and facility location cost in such a system. The problem is to determine how m ..."

The pricing subproblem that arises from the column generation algorithm gives rise to a new class of the submodular function minimization problem. We show that this pricing subproblem can be solved in On logn time, where n is the number
