The abstract follows.
The simultaneous consideration of appointment day (interday scheduling)
and time of day (intraday scheduling) in dynamic scheduling decisions is
a theoretical and practical problem that has remained open. We introduce
a novel dynamic programming framework that incorporates jointly these
scheduling decisions in two timescales. Our model is designed with the
intention of bridging the two streams of literature on interday and
intraday scheduling and to leverage their latest theoretical
developments in tackling the joint problem. We establish theoretical
connections between two recent studies by proving novel theoretical
results in discrete convex analysis regarding constrained multimodular
function minimization. Grounded on our theory, we develop a practically
implementable and computationally tractable scheduling paradigm with
performance guarantees. Numerical experiments demonstrate that the
optimality gap is less than 1% for practical instances of the problem.

The next talk in our series will be:
