We assume that there are several independent agents placed in different geographical locations, each of them has several orders and each order includes different types of products. We use a simple and effective model to obtain maximum profit of the products. To have desired on-time deliveries, the minimization of the transportation costs and total tardiness costs are considered as objective functions. The main idea of this research is to develop a simple and integrated scheduling and transportation model which can be applied in many factories, chain stores, and so on. In order to solve this problem, a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model is presented. Moreover, since solving large instances of the proposed MILP model is very time-consuming, a heuristic algorithm is presented. Implementing of two approaches on a variety of datasets show that the heuristic algorithm can provide good-quality solutions in very short time.https://jmm.guilan.ac.ir/article_5244_b8a4ff25455fb0e927b7b92075552931.pdfUniversity of GuilanJournal of Mathematical Modeling2345-394X10320220901Numerical solution of one-dimensional Sine-Gordon equation using rational radial basis functions387405529510.22124/jmm.2021.20458.1780ENMansourShiralizadehDepartment of Applied Mathematics, University of Kurdistan, Sanandaj, IranAmjadAlipanahDepartment of Applied Mathematics, University of Kurdistan, Sanandaj, IranMaryamMohammadiFaculty of Mathematical Sciences and Computer, Kharazmi University, Tehran, IranJournal Article20210828In this paper, we use the rational radial basis function (RRBF) method for solving the one dimensional Sine-Gordon (SG) equation, especially the case with steep front or sharp gradient solutions. The time and spatial derivatives are approximated by the finite difference and RRBF method, respectively. Some numerical experiments are given in both perturbed and unperturbed cases, and are compared with some other numerical methods to confirm the good accuracy of the presented method. The conservation law of energy is also investigated.https://jmm.guilan.ac.ir/article_5295_de9abe4cf0ac24ae91f18572bf0a1e01.pdfUniversity of GuilanJournal of Mathematical Modeling2345-394X10320220901Bound-preserving interpolation using quadratic splines407419532310.22124/jmm.2021.19496.1676ENJamshidSaeidianFaculty of Mathematical Sciences and Computer, Kharazmi University, No. 50, Taleghani Avenue, Tehran, Iran0000-0003-3991-1701MuhammadSarfrazDepartment of Information Science, College of Life Sciences, Kuwait University, Sabah AlSalem University City, Shadadiya, KuwaitSajadJalilianFaculty of Mathematical Sciences and Computer, Kharazmi University, No. 50, Taleghani Avenue, Tehran, IranJournal Article20210501In this work, we study a data visualization problem which is classified in the field of shape-preserving interpolation. When function is known to be bounded, then it is natural to expect its interpolant to adhere boundedness. Two spline-based techniques are proposed to handle this kind of problem. The proposed methods use quadratic splines as basis and involve solving a linear programming or a mixed integer linear programming problem which gives $C^1$ interpolants. An energy minimization technique is employed to gain the optimal smooth solution. The reliability and applicability of the proposed techniques have been illustrated through examples.https://jmm.guilan.ac.ir/article_5323_ed3559e2689004ef7a3feacb3ed4679e.pdfUniversity of GuilanJournal of Mathematical Modeling2345-394X10320220901An improved upper bound for ultraspherical coefficients421431537010.22124/jmm.2022.21255.1861ENMehdiHamzehnejadDepartment of Mathematics, Faculty of Science and Modern Technology, Graduate University of

For such a problem, we are interested in finding the region that contains the origin, and the optimal partition remains invariant. A computational methodology is presented here for detecting the boundary of this region. The cases where perturbation occurs only in the coefficients matrix and right-hand side vector or the objective function are specified as special cases. The findings are illustrated with some simple examples.https://jmm.guilan.ac.ir/article_5418_bb51197ad0968e3d712d61a874db0ffb.pdfUniversity of GuilanJournal of Mathematical Modeling2345-394X10320220901A novel approach for modeling system reliability characteristics in an imprecise environment449465546010.22124/jmm.2022.20487.1836ENJavadZendehdelDepartment of Statistics, Faculty of Mathematical Sciences and Statistics, University of Birjand, Birjand, IranRezaZareiDepartment of Statistics, Faculty of Mathematical Sciences, University of Guilan, Rasht, IranMohamad GhasemAkbariDepartment of Statistics, Faculty of Mathematical Sciences and Statistics, University of Birjand, Birjand, IranJournal Article20211111In this paper, we introduce and investigate a new definition for the density function of fuzzy random variables.

However, blind image deconvolution addresses the much more complicated, but realistic problem where the PSF is unknown. Bayesian inference approach with appropriate priors on the image and the blur has been used successfully to solve this blind problem, in particular with a Gaussian prior and a joint maximum a posteriori (JMAP) estimation. However, this technique is unstable and suffers from significant ringing artifacts in various applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose a regularized version using $H^1$ regularization terms on both the sharp image and the blur kernel. We present also useful techniques for estimating the smoothing parameters. We were able to derive an efficient algorithm that produces high quality deblurred results compared to some well-known methods in the literature.https://jmm.guilan.ac.ir/article_5461_a0feb2bddaccffd0d6cbe4092888a064.pdfUniversity of GuilanJournal of Mathematical Modeling2345-394X10320220901A descent family of hybrid conjugate gradient methods with global convergence property for nonconvex functions487498548210.22124/jmm.2022.21772.1910ENMinaLotfiDepartment of Applied Mathematics, Tarbiat Modares University, P.O.Box 14115-175, Tehran, IranJournal Article20220213In this paper, we present a new hybrid conjugate gradient method for unconstrained optimization that possesses sufficient descent property independent of any line search. In our method, a convex combination of the Hestenes-Stiefel (HS) and the Fletcher-Reeves (FR) methods, is used as the conjugate parameter and the hybridization parameter is determined by minimizing the distance between the hybrid conjugate gradient direction and direction of the three-term HS method proposed by M. Li (emph{A family of three-term nonlinear conjugate gradient methods close to the memoryless BFGS method,} Optim. Lett. textbf{12} (8) (2018) 1911--1927). Under some standard assumptions, the global convergence property on general functions is established. Numerical results on some test problems in the CUTEst library illustrate the efficiency and robustness of our proposed method in practice. https://jmm.guilan.ac.ir/article_5482_94519afc8a91c8e205f4205fb28abb10.pdfUniversity of GuilanJournal of Mathematical Modeling2345-394X10320220901A numerical method for solving stochastic linear quadratic problem with a finance application499514552510.22124/jmm.2022.20887.1826ENMohammad HosseinFotoohi BafghiDepartment of Applied Mathematics, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Mashhad, IranSohrabEffatiCenter of Excellence on Soft Computing and Intelligent Information ProcessingOmidSolaymani FardFerdowsi University of Mashhad, Mashhad, IranJournal Article20211022This paper is concerned with the stochastic linear quadratic regulator (LQR) optimal control problem in which dynamical systems have control-dependent diffusion coefficients. In fact, providing the solution to this problem leads to solving a matrix Riccati differential equation as well as a vector differential equation with boundary conditions. The present work mainly proposes not only a novel method but also an efficient fixed-point scheme based on the spline interpolation for the numerical solution to the stochastic LQR problem. Via implementing the proposed method to the corresponding differential equation of the stochastic LQR optimal control problem, not only is the numerical solution gained, but also a suboptimal control law is obtained. Furthermore, the method application is illustrated by means of an optimal control example with the financial market problems, including two investment options.https://jmm.guilan.ac.ir/article_5525_8e31dedcfe8553a6f68b84dcb35baa91.pdfUniversity of GuilanJournal of Mathematical Modeling2345-394X10320220901Existence, uniqueness and stability results of an iterative survival model of red blood cells with a delayed nonlinear harvesting term515528554110.22124/jmm.2022.21577.1892ENMarwaKhemisLaboratory of Applied Mathematics and History and Didactics of Mathematics (LAMAHIS), University of 20 August 1955, Skikda, AlgeriaAhlemeBouakkazLaboratory of Applied Mathematics and History and Didactics of Mathematics (LAMAHIS), University of 20 August 1955, Skikda, AlgeriaRabahKhemisLaboratory of Applied Mathematics and History and Didactics of Mathematics (LAMAHIS), University of 20 August 1955, Skikda, AlgeriaJournal Article20220118In this article, a first-order iterative Lasota-Wazewska model with a nonlinear delayed harvesting term is discussed.

The fractional derivatives for time and space are considered in the Coimbra and the Riemann-Liouville sense, respectively. First, the time-variable fractional derivative is discretized through a finite difference approach. Then, the space-variable fractional derivative is approximated by radial basis functions. Also, we advance the Rippa algorithm to obtain a good value for the shape parameter of the radial basis functions. Results obtained from numerical experiments have been compared to the analytical solutions, which indicate high accuracy and efficiency for the proposed scheme.https://jmm.guilan.ac.ir/article_5561_3886565e31d080929ac977588158e79c.pdf
