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

Computations with Disjunctive Cuts for Two-Stage Stochastic Mixed Integer Programs

Two-stage stochastic mixed-integer programming (SMIP) problems with recourse are generally difficult to solve. This paper presents a first computational study of a disjunctive cutting plane method for stochastic mixed 0-1 programs that uses lift-and-project cuts based on the extensive form of the two-stage SMIP problem. An extension of the method based on where the data … Read more
