We study a planning problem associated with networks for private line services. In these networks, demands are known to exhibit considerable variability, and as such, they should be treated as random variables. The proposed planning model is a two-stage stochastic linear program (SLP) with recourse. Due to the enormous size of the deterministic equivalent,(More)
We present alternative methods for verifying the quality of a proposed solution to a two stage stochastic program with recourse. Our methods revolve around implications of a dual problem in which dual multipliers on the nonanticipativity constraints play it critical role. Using randomly sampled observations of the stochastic elements, we introduce notions(More)
In this chapter, we will study algorithms for both two-stage as well as multi-stage stochastic mixed-integer programs. We present stagewise (resourcedirective) decomposition methods for two-stage models, and scenario (pricedirective) decomposition methods for multi-stage models. The manner in which these models are decomposed relies not only on the specific(More)
A multistage stochastic linear program (MSLP) is a model of sequential stochastic optimization where the objective and constraints are linear. When any of the random variables used in the MSLP are continuous, the problem is infinite dimensional. In order to numerically tackle such a problem we usually replace it with a finite dimensional approximation. Even(More)
This paper considers the two-stage stochastic integer programming problem, with an emphasis on instances in which integer variables appear in the second stage. Drawing heavily on the theory of disjunctive programming, we characterize convexifications of the second stage problem and develop a decompositionbased algorithm for the solution of such problems. In(More)
