    Quitting games are multi-player sequential games in which, at every stage, each player has the choice between continuing and quitting. The game ends as soon as at least one player chooses to quit; each player i then receives a payoff r[SUBSSUPi], which depends on the set S of players that did...

    Abstract. In the context of stochastic resource-constrained project scheduling we introduce a novel class of scheduling policies, the linear preselective policies. They combine the benefits of preselective policies and priority policies; two classes that are well known from both deterministic...

    The concepts of multiplicative stochastic perturbations and noise-induced transitions are applied to a quasigeostrophic �-plane model of barotropic flow over topography. The spectral three-component low-order representation of this configuration yields the Charney�DeVore (CDV) model....

    Classical inferential procedures induce conclusions from a set of data to a population of interest, accounting for the imprecision resulting from the stochastic component of the model. This is usually done by means of precision or interval estimates. Less attention is devoted to the uncertainty...

    In this work the effect of ray stochasticity on the multipass absorption of lower-hybrid waves, used to drive current in tokamaks, is considered. In toroidal geometry, stochasticity arises as an intrinsic property of the Hamiltonian ray trajectories for lower-hybrid waves. Based on the wave...

    The use of the random phase approximation in quasilinear theory has been controversial for some time. For the bump-on-tail instability this approximation leads to the neglect of mode coupling effects mediated by the resonant particles. Recently, it has been argued theoretically and numerically...
