A General Heuristic Method for Joint Chance-Constrained Stochastic Programs with Discretely Distributed Parameters

We present a general metaheuristic for joint chance-constrained stochastic programs with discretely distributed parameters. We give a reformulation of the problem that allows us to define a finite solution space. We then formulate a novel neighborhood for the problem and give methods for efficiently searching this neighborhood for solutions that are likely to be improving. … Read more
