The key strategy is to develop analytical bounds for the optimal cost of the Euclidean Stacker Crane Problem (ESCP), which represents a general static model for DRT systems.  ...  In this paper, our aim is to bridge this gap for a rather general model of DRT systems, which takes the form of a generalized Dynamic Pickup and Delivery Problem.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank Prof. Javed Aslam for suggesting the important connection between our lower bounds and the Wasserstain distance.  ...

Replica symmetry of the minimum matching

2012 Annals of Mathematics  
Abstract We establish the soundness of the replica symmetric ansatz introduced by M. Mézard and G. Parisi for the minimum matching problem in the pseudo-dimension d mean field model for d ≥ 1.  ...  The case d = 1 corresponds to the π 2 /6-limit for the assignment problem proved by D. Aldous in 2001.  ...  I thank the referees for suggestions that greatly improved the presentation.  ...

A new framework for Euclidean summary statistics in the neural spike train space

2015 Annals of Applied Statistics  
Statistical analysis and inference on spike trains is one of the central topics in the neural coding. It is of great interest to understand the underlying structure of given neural data.  ...  However, as those metrics lack certain Euclidean properties, the defined averages are nonunique, and do not share the conventional properties of a mean.  ...  Almost surely Non-unique Non-unique Not known Almost surely Table 1 we describe the schematic idea of incorporating the Isolated neuron responses (Not observed) Background noise (Observed  ...
