Online Train Disposition: To Wait or Not to Wait? [chapter]

Luzi Anderegg, Paolo Penna, Peter Widmayer
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We deal with an online problem arising from bus/tram/train disposition problems.  ...  In particular, we look at the case in which the delay is unknown and the vehicle can only wait in a station so as to minimize the passengers waiting time.  ...  or stations and/or buses may not be equally spaced.  ...

Jordan T. Quaglia, Sarah E. Braun, Sara P. Freeman, Michael A. McDaniel, Kirk Warren Brown
2016 Psychological Assessment  
Improvements in stable, or dispositional, mindfulness are often assumed to accrue from mindfulness training and to account for many of its beneficial effects.  ...  Changes in scale dimensions of mindfulness from pre to post mindfulness training produced mean difference effect sizes ranging from small to moderate (g ϭ 0.28 -0.49).  ...  relevant to mindfulness training that have yet to be widely assessed, or which were not considered in the present review.  ...
