Optimizing supply chain management in hospitals can lead to a significant reduction in costs. One of the supply chain processes that can be optimized is the sterilization of reusable instruments used during surgical procedures. This process takes place at the Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) and consists of two main steps, `washing and...

We consider a simplified version of the Monte Carlo tree search (MCTS) problem, a problem where, given a game tree with stochastic reward, one is tasked with finding the best move from the root. This problem is well studied, and recently impressive results have been obtained. For example, in 2016, when the AlphaGo program beat the professional...

This thesis captures the calibration of a FX hybrid model: The FX Black-Scholes Hull-White model. The main focus is on the calibration of the parameters in the Hull-White process: The mean reversion and the volatility parameter. The latter is commonly calibrated as a time-dependent parameter, whilst the mean reversion parameter is not. This...

In this thesis max-plus algebra is introduced and applied to the problem of controlling train delays. Two control strategies for the propagation of delays are discussed. The first is by letting certain trains run faster when a delay is detected, the second is by breaking connections between trains that have to wait for each other in order to...

In 2011 Avsec showed strong solidity of the q-Gaussian algebras, building upon previous results of Houdayer and Shlyakhtenko, and Ozawa and Popa. In this work we study this result as well as the necessary literature and q-mathematics needed to replicate the proof. The literature is combined within this thesis, whilst additionally filling in gaps...

In this paper, it is analysed how an infinite cable behaves when a wave from the right hits a TMD system attached to it. The TMD system consists of a mass M1, a spring with stiffness K, a damper with coefficient C and a second mass M2. The cable has a tension T. Then it is investigated what happens when a wave goes through the cable and hits...

Burn injuries occur daily and can have severe physical and mental effects both in short and long term, such as disabilities due to severe skin contraction. Even though the mortality rate has decreased over the years, the need for a higher quality of life after severe burns remains. Decreasing the probability of a severe contraction is essential...

Skin grafting is a common technique employed to treat patients after burn injuries. In contrast to the frequency and gravity of contractures following from skin grafts, the phenomenon itself is still poorly understood and subject of studies. The development of an accurate model of skin contractures will allow medical researchers to better...

This work is part of the low-fieldMRI project, which aims to bring portable, affordable, low-fieldMRI scanners to low-income countries. Replacing the superconducting magnets of conventional scanners with standard ones can significantly reduce the costs, but it also has a negative impact on the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR). In order to circumvent...

Demand deposits modeling is of top importance for banking institutions and usually represents a large part of a bank portfolio. Even though these products seem rather simple at first glance, demand deposits are without a fixed maturity, generating uncertainties in the model. A significant amount of academic literature on this subject is...

The maritime inventory routing problem (MIRP) is a tactical and operational planning problem, that takes an integrated view on ship scheduling and inventory management for bulk products. Given production and consumption levels during a predetermined planning horizon, the problem aims at finding delivery schedules with minimal travel costs, such...

Backward stochastic differential equations (BSDE) are known to be a powerful tool in mathematical modeling due to their inherent connection with second-order parabolic partial differential equations (PDE) established by the non-linear Feynman-Kac relations. The fundamental power of BSDEs lies in the fact that with them one does not merely obtain...

In this bachelor thesis we propose a spatial Markov Chain Cellular Automata<br/>model for the spread of the COVID-19 virus as well as two methods for parameter<br/>estimation. Network topologies are used to model the progression of the epidemic<br/>by considering each individual on a grid and using stochastic principles to determine the...

In this thesis we build a goal based planning framework that takes into account goal priorities. Goal based planning is a type of personal wealth planning, with a focus on the feasibility of an investor's goals. Currently, to take goal priorities into account a dynamic asset allocation is created. We focus on incorporating goal priorities by...

In this thesis we look at three different algorithms within the field of phylogenetics and create a proof of concept for using machine learning to improve the algorithms. The problems are the maximum agreement forest problem, the hybridization number problem and finally the tail move problem. A study of the problems show that they can all...

Flash calculations are used for the dynamic simulation of vapor-liquid phase equilibria (VLE) in many chemical processes. When used to predict the composition of mixtures in VLE, the repeated applicatino of these flash calculations, particularly in dynamic cases can cause small inaccuracies to cascade. One way to prevent this, is to have strong...

When creating electronic devices, it is essential to model what happens when an electromagnetic field hits the device and it scatters. Conventionally, this can be modelled using the Marching-on-in-Time algorithm. This can become computationally expensive for complex systems. To speed up the algorithm, the Plane-Wave Time-Domain algorithm is...

Stationary sets are important tools in proofs of properties in sets of uncountable cardinality. In this thesis we look at mapping properties between stationary sets. First, the theory necessary for the construction and evaluation of stationary sets is made. That is the theory of ordinal, cardinal and regular cardinal numbers is build up from the...

Porous asphalt resides on most top layers of Dutch roads. Scheduling maintenance for these roads is generally dependent on several factors, but ravelling, the loss of aggregates in the top layers, is the main reason for maintenance on Dutch roads. With the recent framework of the DOS-LCMS scheme generating values for aggregate loss in...
