Lorentzian-geometry-based analysis of airplane boarding policies highlights

blog post image Lorentzian-geometry-based analysis of airplane boarding policies highlights “slow passengers first” as better: This paper tackles the problem of airplane boarding by making use of geodesics in an appropriate spacetime. The authors find that boarding slower passengers first reduces the total boarding...
