(Oxford University Press, 1989)Some of the structures developed by operational researchers to help clients explore a problemsituation and design a way forward are described briefly. The difficulty of getting appropriate mathematical support for the ...

(Oxford University Press, 1992)A producer sells a product together with a warranty valid for a specified duration.Whenever the product fails during the warranty period, the producer is responsible for making the product functional, either by replacing ...

(Oxford University Press, 1992)The use of a modeldriven approach to the analysis of repairable systems is considered and shown to be useful as a way of understanding the characteristics of such a system. However, considerable statistical problems arise ...

(Oxford University Press, 1991)This article is the edited text of an invited lecture given to branches of the IMA describing how actuaries use mathematics, with examples of how they relate mathematics to real problems, how the changing needs of the ...

(Oxford University Press, 1993)The objective of analysing a company's risk exposures is to gain an understanding of the risks that the company faces. Only then can the likely level of future losses be estimated, and decisions about how best to manage ...

(Oxford University Press, 1995)There is a well established literature on delaytime models of regular inspection policies where inspections may or maynot be perfect, and where the initial point u of a defect arises as a homogeneous Poisson process. This ...

(Oxford University Press, 1993)In this paper, we set forth an expertsystem model to help alert banks and other financial institutions to fraudulent usage of consumer credit during the authorization process. The paper first addresses the modelbuilding ...

(Oxford University Press, 1988)Aggregation of resource constraints and detailed allocation decision variables in the presence of groups of similar components is considered in the context of creating aggregate scheduling models within a hierarchical ...

(Oxford University Press, 1991)This paper considers oncondition maintenance based on periodic inspection and control of a condition parameter which describes the wear and deterioration of the productive equipment. We develop a model based on delay time ...

(Oxford University Press, 1993)This paper describes the development and application of a method for evaluating the risk of coastal flooding. The method defines both the area which becomes inundated by a storm of a particular severity, assuming that a ...

(Oxford University Press, 1991)Many marine fisheries are under pressure from overfishing. Fisheries management is a complex process because of the need to consider the interaction of the biological components of the fishery, the technical characteristics ...

(Oxford University Press, 1992)A class of solutions of the Nagumo equation are obtained by the Painlevé approach. Some new solutions are given. Travelling wave solutions of a related porous medium problem are also found.

(Oxford University Press, 1992)Cluster analysis has existed as a statistical tool for some time, although its entry into the world of credit has been belated and mainly through applications in marketing. It does, however, have some applications in credit ...

(Oxford University Press, 1991)

(Oxford University Press, 1991)This paper presents an axiomatic theory of accounting practice which describes accounting concepts in terms of sets. The theory provides a framework within which to understand the significance of accounting measurements ...

An empirical analysis of infeasibility diagnosis for instances of linear programming blending models(Oxford University Press, 1992)This study reports empirical findings for applying three methods of diagnosing infeasibility, based on: (1) Phase I price aggregation, (2) irreducible infeasible subsystems, and (3) successive bounding. The problem class ...

(Oxford University Press, 1986)Modelling, rather than solution, support is generally recognized as a critical problem area inhibiting far greater use of mathematical programming. This paper makes use of spreadsheets to propose a new species of (mathematical ...

(Oxford University Press, 1992)A new threedimensional surface radiation condition is derived which has the advantage over previous ones of going over, in two dimensions, to the most accurate ones known. It is tested against exact results for a penetrable ...

(Oxford University Press, 1995)In his book Fundamentals of decision theory, written in the early 1970s, Doug White offers a formal structure of decision theory. This structure identifies the components of and participants to a decision and the interrelations ...

(Oxford University Press, 1991)This paper distinguishes certain wellknown accounting systems on the basis of five axioms characterizing their concept of capital maintenance. The structure of these ‘financially coherent accounting systems’ is reduced ...
