Eindhoven Stochastics Seminar

Mar 9, 15:45 - 16:45
MS Teams

Tim Oosterwijk  (UM)  The secretary problem with independent sampling Sequential decision making under uncertainty is a basic problem that bridges several areas. Examples include online algorithms in computer science, and optimal stopping problems with stochastic input in the field of operations research and applied probability. In this talk, I will discuss the secretary problem, where we are faced with an online sequence of elements with values. Upon seeing an element we have to make an irrevocable take-it-or-leave-it decision. The goal…

YEQT XIV: "Load balancing and scheduling for distributed service systems"

Jun 7 - Jun 9
Eurandom, Metaforum
Eindhoven, Netherlands
+ Google Map

Summary Distributed service systems are ubiquitous, from server farms for cloud computing and charging stations for electric vehicles, to checkout lines at supermarkets and ICU beds in hospitals. The size of many of these systems has exploded over the past few years, which has created new challenges in the design of control policies. These new challenges, such as scalability, data locality, and server and task heterogeneity, have fueled a renewed interest in the study of these systems, and accelerated the…
