Smooth minimization of two-stage stochastic linear programs

Shabbir Ahmed (sahmed***at***isye.gatech.edu)

Abstract: This note presents an application of the smooth optimization technique of Nesterov for solving two-stage stochastic linear programs. It is shown that the original O(1/e) bound of Nesterov on the number of main iterations required to obtain an e-optimal solution is retained.

Keywords: Stochastic linear programming, smooth minimization

Category 1: Stochastic Programming
