# A new perspective on parameter study of optimization problems

@article{Alexanderian2022ANP, title={A new perspective on parameter study of optimization problems}, author={Alen Alexanderian and Joseph L. Hart and Mason Stevens}, journal={Appl. Math. Lett.}, year={2022}, volume={140}, pages={108548} }

We provide a new perspective on the study of parameterized optimization problems. Our approach combines methods for post-optimal sensitivity analysis and ordinary differential equations to quantify the uncertainty in the minimizer due to uncertain parameters in the optimization problem. We illustrate the proposed approach with a simple analytic example and an inverse problem governed by an advection diffusion equation.
