Exact and Approximate Schemes for Robust Optimization Problems with Decision Dependent Information Discovery

Uncertain optimization problems with decision dependent information discovery allow the decision maker to control the timing of information discovery, in contrast to the classic multistage setting where uncertain parameters are revealed sequentially based on a prescribed filtration. This problem class is useful in a wide range of applications, however, its assimilation is partly limited by … Read more

ROC++: Robust Optimization in C++

Over the last two decades, robust optimization has emerged as a popular means to address decision-making problems affected by uncertainty. This includes single- and multi-stage problems involving real-valued and/or binary decisions, and affected by exogenous (decision-independent) and/or endogenous (decision-dependent) uncertain parameters. Robust optimization techniques rely on duality theory potentially augmented with approximations to transform a … Read more

Robust Optimization with Decision-Dependent Information Discovery

Robust optimization (RO) is a popular paradigm for modeling and solving two- and multi-stage decision-making problems affected by uncertainty. In many real-world applications, such as R&D project selection, production planning, or preference elicitation for product or policy recommendations, the time of information discovery┬áis decision-dependent and the uncertain parameters only become observable after an often costly … Read more
