This publication constitutes the refereed complaints of the 1st overseas ICST convention on idea and perform of Algorithms in (Computer) platforms, TAPAS 2011, held in Rome, Italy, in April 2011. The 25 papers offered, together with 3 brief papers by means of invited audio system, have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from forty five submissions. The papers all characteristic unique study within the layout, implementation and evaluate of algorithms with certain specialize in algorithms for combinatorial optimization difficulties, and to real-world functions, engineering and experimental research of algorithms - hence fostering the cooperation between researchers in laptop technology, networking, discrete arithmetic, mathematical programming and operations research.

The two-volume complaints, LNCS 6927 and LNCS 6928, represent the papers offered on the thirteenth foreign convention on machine Aided platforms conception, EUROCAST 2011, held in February 2011 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. the complete of one hundred sixty papers provided have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen for inclusion within the books.

This quantity comprises just about all of the papers that have been awarded on the Workshop on Stochastic conception and regulate that used to be held on the Univ- sity of Kansas, 18–20 October 2001. This three-day occasion accumulated a gaggle of best students within the ? eld of stochastic concept and regulate to debate modern themes of stochastic regulate, which come with possibility delicate keep an eye on, adaptive keep watch over, arithmetic of ?

Coming up from the 1996 Cape city convention in honour of the mathematician Bernhard Banaschewski, this number of 30 refereed papers represents present advancements in classification thought, topology, topos idea, common algebra, version thought, and numerous ordered and algebraic buildings. Banaschewski's impression is mirrored right here, relatively within the contributions to pointfree topology on the degrees of nearness, uniformity, and asymmetry.

In that paper, the following mechanism was investigated (motivated by the pioneering work of Kelly et al. [5,6] in communication networks): the LOPs oﬀer bids, which they (dynamically) update for buying frequencies. The NOP announces an (anonymous) resource pricing scheme, which indirectly implies an allocation of frequencies to the LOPs, given their own bids. For the case of a single pool of lines, a distributed, dynamic, LOP bidding and (resource) price updating scheme was presented, whose equilibrium point is the unknown social optimum – assuming strict concavity and monotonicity of the private (unknown) utility functions.

To achieve this, the NOP divides the whole railway infrastructure to the pools, using variables fk , k ∈ K that determine the proportion of the total capacity of the edges that is assigned to pool k. t. Up,k (xp,k ) p∈P k∈K ,p (k) · xp,k ≤ c · fk , ∀( , k) ∈ L × K p∈P fk ≤ 1 ; x, f ≥ 0 k∈K (MSC-II) Robust Line Planning in Case of Multiple Pools and Disruptions 37 Clearly, the NOP cannot solve this problem directly for (at least) two reasons: (i) the utility functions are unknown to him; (ii) the scale of the problem can be too large (as it is typical with railway networks) so that it can be solved eﬃciently via a centralized computation.
