On level regularization with normal solutions in decomposition methods for multistage stochastic programming problems

We consider well-known decomposition techniques for multistage stochastic programming and a new scheme based on normal solutions for stabilizing iterates during the solution process. The given algorithms combine ideas from finite perturbation of convex programs and level bundle methods to regularize the so-called forward step of these decomposition methods. Numerical experiments on a hydrothermal scheduling … Read more
