Article
An electric road system (ERS) is a road in which vehicles can travel powered from the electrical grid. Deployed at scale, this technology reduces or eliminates the need for electric vehicles (EVs) to stop for recharging, and allows for equipping these vehicles with smaller batteries. In particular, it facilitates the decarbonisation of road freight...
Article
This paper extends the single-item single-stocking location nonstationary stochastic inventory problem to relax the assumption of independent demand. We present a mathematical programming-based solution method built upon an existing piecewise linear approximation strategy under the receding horizon control framework. Our method can be implemented b...
Article
Support Vector Machines (SVMs), originally proposed for classifications of two classes, have become a very popular technique in the machine learning field. For multi-class classifications, various single-objective models and multi-objective ones have been proposed. However,in most single-objective models, neither the different costs of different mi...

Since the seminal paper by Bates and Granger in 1969, a vast number of ensemble methods that combine different base regressors to generate a unique one have been proposed in the literature. The so-obtained regressor method may have better accuracy than its components, but at the same time it may overfit, it may be distorted by base regressors with...

When continuously monitoring processes over time, data is collected along a whole period, from which only certain time instants and certain time intervals may play a crucial role in the data analysis. We develop a method that addresses the problem of selecting a finite and small set of short intervals (or instants) able to capture the information n...

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that was first identified in China in December 2019. Subsequently COVID-19 started to spread broadly, to also arrive in Spain by the end of Jan-uary 2020. This pandemic triggered confinement measures, in order to reduce the expansion of the virus so as not to saturate the health care system. With the aim of providi...
Article
When classification methods are applied to high-dimensional data, selecting a subset of the predictors may lead to an improvement in the predictive ability of the estimated model, in addition to reducing the model complexity. In Functional Data Analysis (FDA), i.e., when data are functions, selecting a subset of predictors corresponds to selecting...
Article
Functional Data Analysis (FDA) is devoted to the study of data which are functions. Support Vector Machine (SVM) is a benchmark tool for classification, in particular, of functional data. SVM is frequently used with a kernel (e.g.: Gaussian) which involves a scalar bandwidth parameter. In this paper, we propose to use kernels with functional bandwi...

The default approach for tuning the parameters of a Support Vector Machine (SVM) is a grid search in the parameter space. Different metaheuristics have been recently proposed as a more efficient alternative, but they have only shown to be useful in models with a low number of parameters. Complex models, involving many parameters, can be seen as ext...
Article
In ordinal regression, a score function and threshold values are sought to classify a set of objects into a set of ranked classes. Classifying an individual in a class with higher (respectively lower) rank than its actual rank is called an upgrading (respectively downgrading) error. Since upgrading and downgrading errors may not have the same impor...
Article
The widely used Support Vector Machine (SVM) method has shown to yield good results in Supervised Classification problems. When the interpretability is an important issue, then classification methods such as Classification and Regression Trees (CART) might be more attractive, since they are designed to detect the important predictor variables and,...
Article
Full-text available
The widely used support vector machine (SVM) method has shown to yield very good results in supervised classification problems. Other methods such as classification trees have become more popular among practitioners than SVM thanks to their interpretability, which is an important issue in data mining. In this work, we propose an SVM-based method th...
Article
Support Vector Machine has shown to have good performance in many practical classification settings. In this paper we propose, for multi-group classification, a biobjective optimization model in which we consider not only the generalization ability (modeled through the margin maximization), but also costs associated with the features. This cost is...
Article
Full-text available
The nearest-neighbor classifier has been shown to be a powerful tool for multiclass classification. We explore both theoretical properties and empirical behavior of a variant method, in which the nearest-neighbor rule is applied to a reduced set of prototypes. This set is selected a priori by fixing its cardinality and minimizing the empirical misc...
Article
In this paper we propose a biobjective model for two-group classification via margin maximization, in which the margins in both classes are simultaneously maximized. The set of Pareto-optimal solutions is described, yielding a set of parallel hyperplanes, one of which is just the solution of the classical SVM approach.In order to take into account...
Conference Paper
In this paper we address a multigroup classification problem in which we want to take into account, together with the generalization ability, costs associated with the features. This cost is not limited to an economical payment, but can also refer to risk, computational effort, space requirements, etc. In order to get a good generalization ability,...
