On pricing-based equilibrium for network expansion planning. A multi-period bilevel approach under uncertainty

This study focuses on the development of a mixed binary primal-dual bilinear model for multi-period bilevel network expansion planning under uncertainty, where pricing-based equilibrated strategic and operational decisions are to be made. The periodwise dependent parameters’ uncertainty is represented by a _nite set of scenarios. Pricing-based equilibrium is required in the models to be optimized … Read more

Lagrangian relaxation for SVM feature selection

We discuss a Lagrangian-relaxation-based heuristics for dealing with feature selection in a standard L1 norm Support Vector Machine (SVM) framework for binary classification. The feature selection model we adopt is a Mixed Binary Linear Programming problem and it is suitable for a Lagrangian relaxation approach. Based on a property of the optimal multiplier setting, we … Read more
