Nonlinear-Programming Reformulation of the Order-Value Optimization problem

Order-value optimization (OVO) is a generalization of the minimax problem motivated by decision-making problems under uncertainty and by robust estimation. New optimality conditions for this nonsmooth optimization problem are derived. An equivalent mathematical programming problem with equilibrium constraints is deduced. The relation between OVO and this nonlinear-programming reformulation is studied. Particular attention is given to … Read more
