Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents abstracts of research papers, on topics ranging from a queuing network analysis of automated handling systems to primal partitioning solutions for the routing of shipments for less-than-truckload motor carriers. These research papers were nominated for the Transportation Science Section Dissertation Prize Competition for the year 1990. This year, the winner is Jeffrey I. McGill for his dissertation, "Optimization and Estimation Problems in Airline Yield Management." This paper addressed a rich optimization problem with the statistical estimation challenges involved in working with actual observations.

    Queueing networks have been used to model the performance or a variety of complex systems. Since exact results exist for only a limited class of networks, the decomposition methodology has been used extensively to obtain approximate results. In this paper, we consider open queueing networks with...
