Worst-case-expectation approach to optimization under uncertainty

In this paper we discuss multistage programming with the data process subject to uncertainty. We consider a situation were the data process can be naturally separated into two components, one can be modeled as a random process, with a specified probability distribution, and the other one can be treated from a robust (worst case) point … Read more

Risk neutral and risk averse Stochastic Dual Dynamic Programming method

In this paper we discuss risk neutral and risk averse approaches to multistage (linear) stochastic programming problems based on the Stochastic Dual Dynamic Programming (SDDP) method. We give a general description of the algorithm and present computational studies related to planning of the Brazilian interconnected power system.
