Distributionally Robust Optimization with Matrix Moment Constraints: Lagrange Duality and Cutting Plane Methods

A key step in solving minimax distributionally robust optimization (DRO) problems is to reformulate the inner maximization w.r.t. probability measure as a semiinfinite programming problem through Lagrange dual. Slater type conditions have been widely used for zero dual gap when the ambiguity set is defined through moments. In this paper, we investigate effective ways for … Read more

A branch and cut algorithm for solving the linear and quadratic integer programming problems

This paper first presents an improve cutting plane method for solving the linear programming problems, based on the primal simplex method with the current equivalent facet technique, in which the increment of objection function is allowed as a pivot variable to decide the search step size. We obtain a strong valid inequality from the objective … Read more
