## Sampling-based Decomposition Algorithms for Multistage Stochastic Programming

Sampling-based algorithms provide a practical approach to solving large-scale multistage stochastic programs. This chapter presents two alternative approaches to incorporating sampling within multistage stochastic linear programming algorithms. In the first approach, sampling is used to construct a sample average approximation (SAA) of the true multistage program. Subsequently, an optimization step is undertaken using deterministic decomposition … Read more
