A General Wasserstein Framework for Data-driven Distributionally Robust Optimization: Tractability and Applications

Data-driven distributionally robust optimization is a recently emerging paradigm aimed at finding a solution that is driven by sample data but is protected against sampling errors. An increasingly popular approach, known as Wasserstein distributionally robust optimization (DRO), achieves this by applying the Wasserstein metric to construct a ball centred at the empirical distribution and finding … Read more

Distributionally Robust Optimization under Distorted Expectations

Distributionally robust optimization (DRO) has arose as an important paradigm to address the issue of distributional ambiguity in decision optimization. In its standard form, DRO seeks an optimal solution against the worst-possible expected value evaluated based on a set of candidate distributions. In the case where a decision maker is not risk neutral, the most … Read more
