RSOME in Python: An Open-Source Package for Robust Stochastic Optimization Made Easy

We develop a Python package called RSOME for modeling a wide spectrum of robust and distributionally robust optimization problems. RSOME serves as a modeling platform for formulating various optimization problems subject to distributional ambiguity in a highly readable and mathematically intuitive manner. Compared with the MATLAB version, RSOME in Python is more versatile and well … Read more

Joint Pricing and Production: A Fusion of Machine Learning and Robust Optimization

We integrate machine learning with distributionally robust optimization to address a two-period problem for the joint pricing and production of multiple items. First, we generalize the additive demand model to capture both cross-product and cross-period effects as well as the demand dependence across periods. Next, we apply K-means clustering to the demand residual mapping based … Read more

Robust Stochastic Optimization Made Easy with RSOME

We present a new distributionally robust optimization model called robust stochastic optimization (RSO), which unifies both scenario-tree based stochastic linear optimization and distributionally robust optimization in a practicable framework that can be solved using the state-of-the-art commercial optimization solvers. We also develop a new algebraic modeling package, RSOME to facilitate the implementation of RSO models. … Read more
