- A Polynomial Case of the Batch Presorting Problem (2003)
- This paper presents new theoretical results for a special case of the batch presorting problem (BPSP). We will show tht this case can be solved in polynomial time. Offline and online algorithms are presented for solving the BPSP. Competetive analysis is used for comparing the algorithms.
- Batch Presorting Problems:Models and Complexity Results (2002)
- In this paper we consider short term storage systems. We analyze presorting strategies to improve the effiency of these storage systems. The presorting task is called Batch PreSorting Problem (BPSP). The BPSP is a variation of an assigment problem, i.e., it has an assigment problem kernel and some additional constraints. We present different types of these presorting problems, introduce mathematical programming formulations and prove the NP-completeness for one type of the BPSP. Experiments are carried out in order to compare the different model formulations and to investigate the behavior of these models.
