A Branch-and-Cut Algorithm for Scheduling the Highly-Constrained Chilean Soccer Tournament [chapter]

Thiago F. Noronha, Celso C. Ribeiro, Guillermo Duran, Sebastian Souyris, Andres Weintraub
Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling VI  
We derive valid inequalities for improving the liner relaxation bound and we propose a new branch-and-cut strategy for the problem.  ...  The Chilean soccer championship follows the structure of a compact single round robin tournament.  ...  Concluding remarks We proposed a new formulation for the highly constrained Chilean soccer tournament scheduling problem.  ...

Scheduling the Brazilian Soccer Tournament with Fairness and Broadcast Objectives [chapter]

Celso C. Ribeiro, Sebastián Urrutia
Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling VI  
Scheduling the games of this tournament is a very constrained problem, with two objectives: breaks minimization (fairness) and the maximization of the revenues from TV broadcasting.  ...  Numerical results obtained for the 2005 and 2006 editions of the tournament are reported and compared.  ...  Goossens and Spieksma [5] considered the scheduling of the Belgian soccer league. Noronha et al. [7] proposed a branch-and-cut algorithm to schedule the Chilean soccer tournament.  ...

Scheduling the sports of Canada West : a tale of two discrete optimization models

Charles Jolin-Landry
This thesis provides a thorough description of implementing a generic sports scheduling model using both MIP and CP.  ...  We demonstrate this idea by testing a constraint that exploits an implicit structure of sports leagues schedule.  ...  He went above and beyond his supervisory duties and his mentorship has made me a better discrete optimizer. I also wish to thank Dr. Heinz Bauschke for his continual support throughout the project.  ...

Counterfactual Memorization in Neural Language Models [article]

Chiyuan Zhang, Daphne Ippolito, Katherine Lee, Matthew Jagielski, Florian Tramèr, Nicholas Carlini
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We further estimate the influence of each training example on the validation set and on generated texts, and show that this can provide direct evidence of the source of memorization at test time.  ...  As models continue to scale up in parameters, training data, and compute, understanding memorization in language models is both important from a learning-theoretical point of view, and is practically crucial  ...  _ Background _START_PARAGRAPH_ The 20178 Missouri Valley Conference Men's Soccer Tournament is the culmination of the regular season.  ...

We also document that large bidders do better than small bidders.  ...  However, if workers are risk averse or one worker has a lead a J-type tournament may dominate a Utype tournament.  ...

PEGASUS: Pre-training with Extracted Gap-sentences for Abstractive Summarization [article]

2020 arXiv   pre-print
However, pre-training objectives tailored for abstractive text summarization have not been explored. Furthermore there is a lack of systematic evaluation across diverse domains.  ...  In PEGASUS, important sentences are removed/masked from an input document and are generated together as one output sequence from the remaining sentences, similar to an extractive summary.  ...  , and Samy Bengio for reviewing the manuscript.  ...
