About this book

Sebastian Meiswinkel studies optimization problems that arise at container ports from a classic optimization as well as from a mechanism design point of view.  The first part of this dissertation is focused on scheduling problems with selfish job owners that have private information about their characteristics. Afterwards the transportations of containers between the quay and a storage area is considered. Variants of this problem are analyzed for utilization of reach stackers and straddle carriers.

About the authors

Dr. Sebastian Meiswinkel wrote his dissertation under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Erwin Pesch at the Department of Management Information Science at the University of Siegen.
