 Abstract: There are some methods for solving integro-differential equations. In this work, we solve the general-order Feredholm integro-differential equations. The Petrov-Galerkin method by considering Chebyshev multiwavelet basis is used. By using the orthonormality property of basis elements in discretizing the equation, we can reduce an equation to a linear system with small dimension. For numerical examples, the solutions may be produced with good accuracy, by choosing suitable trial and test spaces in Petrov-Galerkin method.

In today's world, natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, crises such as terrorist attacks and protests threaten the lives of many people. Hence, in this research we present a mathematical modeling that provide efficient and effective model to locate temporary depot, equitable distribution of resources and movement of injured people to health centers, with the aim of developing the multi-objective model and considering multiple central depot, multiple temporary depot and several type of relief items in the model . This paper is considered certainty state and uncertainty of influencing parameters of the models in robust optimization for three different levels uncertainty and in different size with consideration of traditional goals function and humanitarian purposes functions simultaneously. The model has been solved with multi-objective Particle Swarm optimization algorithm (MOPSO) and GAMS software to validate the model. Some numerical examples are presented. In Addition, we present sensitivity analyzes of model and study the relationship of the number of temporary depot location and the number of injured people to move to health centers and the number of uncovered damaged points.

In large-scale emergency, the vehicle routing problem focuses on finding the best routes for vehicles. The equitable distribution has a vital role in this problem to decrease the number of death and save people's lives. In addition to this, air pollution is a threat to people’s life and it can be considered to omit other kinds of disasters happens because of it. So, a new MINLP model presented is going to face a real situation by considering real world assumptions such as fuzzy demands and travel time, multi depots and items, vehicle capacity and split delivery. The first objective function is to minimize the sum of unsatisfied demand which follows a piecewise function and the second one is to minimize the cost which depends on the fuel consumption. In order to solve the multi-objective problem with fuzzy parameters, nonlinear function has been linearized by convex combination and a new crisp model is presented by defusing fuzzy parameters. Finally, NSGA-П algorithm is applied to solve this problem and the numerical results gained by this procedure demonstrate its convergence and its efficiency in this problem.

Prediction of unexpected incidents and energy consumption are some industry issues and problems. Single machine scheduling with preemption and considering failures has been pointed out in this study. Its aim is to minimize earliness and tardiness penalties by using job expansion or compression methods. The present study solves this problem in two parts. The first part predicts failures and obtains some rules to correct the process, and the second includes the sequence of single-machine scheduling operations. The failure time is predicted using some machine learning algorithms includes: Logistic Regression, Decision Tree, Random Forest, Support Vector Machine (SVM), Naïve Bayes, and k-nearest neighbors. Results of comparing the algorithms, indicate that the decision tree algorithm outperformed other algorithms with a probability of 70% in predicting failure. In the second part, the problem is scheduled considering these failures and machine idleness in a single-machine scheduling manner to achieve an optimal sequence, minimize energy consumption, and reduce failures. The mathematical model for this problem has been presented by considering processing time, machine idleness, release time, rotational speed and torque, failure time, and machine availability after repair and maintenance. The results of the model solving, concluded that the relevant mathematical model could schedule up to 8 jobs within a reasonable time and achieve an optimal sequence, which could reduce costs, energy consumption, and failures. Moreover, it is suggested that further studies use this approach for other types of scheduling, including parallel machine scheduling and flow job shop scheduling. Metaheuristic algorithms can be used for larger dimensions.
