A new interior-point approach for large two-stage stochastic problems

Two-stage stochastic models give rise to very large optimization problems. Several approaches have been devised for efficiently solving them, including interior-point methods (IPMs). However, using IPMs, the linking columns associated to first-stage decisions cause excessive fill-in for the solution of the normal equations. This downside is usually alleviated if variable splitting is applied to first-stage … Read more
