Solving Stochastic and Bilevel Mixed-Integer Programs via a Generalized Value Function

We introduce a generalized value function of a mixed-integer program, which is simultaneously parameterized by its objective and right-hand side. We describe its fundamental properties, which we exploit through three algorithms to calculate it. We then show how this generalized value function can be used to reformulate two classes of mixed-integer optimization problems: two-stage stochastic … Read more
