Monte Carlo sampling-based estimators of optimality gaps for stochastic programs are known to be biased. When bias is a prominent factor, estimates of optimality gaps tend to be large on average even for high-quality solutions. This diminishes our ability to recognize high-quality solutions. In this paper, we present a method for reducing the bias of the(More)
This paper introduces the notion of option pricing in the context of financial markets. The discrete time, one-period binomial model is explored and generalized to the multi-period binomial model. The multi-period model is then redeveloped using the sophisticated tools of martingale theory. The paper concludes with a brief extension of the results to(More)
