This in an excerpt from Mr. Fabiano Cézar Gomes Nascimento M.Sc. Thesis Abstract. The thesis was defended yesterday morning, when Mr. Nascimento delivered his one hour presentation, got the feedbacks and advises to perform minor revisions in his written work, answered some questions posed by the jury and eventually got the result he had chased for years: .
The thesis title was “Modelo matemático para planejamento da distribuição de locomotivas em pátios ferroviários para atendimento à demanda de formação de trens” (free translation: Mathematical model for locomotives distribution among railroad yards to meet train formation demands)
Once again I would like to register my gratitude to Prof. Rodrigo de Alvarenga Rosa for the invitation to take part in the examination board and I give my congratulations to Mr. Nascimento for his achievement.
It was an honour to take part in this session, specially because railroad planning is my preferred research topic.
