Logit choice models for interactive attributes

In multi attribute decision making (MADM), the choice of a decision-maker (DM) is often the result of an interplay between the DM's unique attitude, the utilities (specific to the DM) for the attributes, and the degree of positive (or negative) interaction among the attributes. Based on this conglom...(Read Full Abstract)


Regression models for group testing: Identifiability and asymptotics

  • Authors: Chatterjee A., Bandyopadhyay T.

    DOI: 10.1016/j.jspi.2019.05.003

Group testing has been widely used in epidemiology and related fields to estimate prevalence of rare diseases. Parametric binary regression models are used in group testing to estimate the covariate adjusted prevalence. Unlike the standard binary regression model (viz., logistic, complementary log–l...(Read Full Abstract)

Planning and scheduling transportation operations is considered computationally hard and time demanding. We consider a complex network of interconnected links across a set of locations and a set of vehicle movements on these links to fulfil some traffic demands. In such a set-up, basically two types...(Read Full Abstract)

    DOI: 10.1007/s10551-017-3449-y

In this paper, we explore a popular flexible work arrangement (FWA), home-based telework, in the Indian IT industry. We show how IT managers used the dominant meanings of telework to portray telework as an employee benefit that outweighed the attendant cost—intensified work. While using their discre...(Read Full Abstract)
