Stochastic Dynamic Programming Using Optimal Quantizers

Multi-stage stochastic optimization is a well-known quantitative tool for decision-making under uncertainty, which applications include financial and investment planning, inventory control, energy production and trading, electricity generation planning, supply chain management and similar fields. Theoretical solution of multi-stage stochastic programs can be found explicitly only in very exceptional cases due to the complexity of the … Read more

Robust PageRank: Stationary Distribution on a Growing Network Structure

PageRank (PR) is a challenging and important network ranking algorithm, which plays a crucial role in information technologies and numerical analysis due to its huge dimension and wide range of possible applications. The traditional approach to PR goes back to the pioneering paper of S. Brin and L. Page, who developed the initial method in … Read more
