Exact Solutions to a Carsharing Pricing and Relocation Problem under Uncertainty

In this article we study the problem of jointly deciding carsharing prices and vehicle relocations. We consider carsharing services operating in the context of multi-modal urban transportation systems. Pricing decisions take into account the availability of alternative transport modes, and customer preferences with respect to these. In order to account for the inherent uncertainty in … Read more

On the Number of Stages in Multistage Stochastic Programs

Multistage stochastic programs are a viable modeling tool for sequential decisions conditional on information revealed at different points in time (stages). However, as the number of stages increases their applicability is soon halted by the curse of dimensionality. A typical, sometimes forced, alternative is to approximate stages by their expected values thus considering fewer stages … Read more
