This second edition replaces Lectures on Stochastic Programming: Modeling and Theory (MP09, ISBN 9780898716870), which is no longer available.
Optimization problems involving stochastic models occur in almost all areas of science and engineering, such as telecommunications, medicine, and finance. Their existence compels a need for rigorous ways of formulating, analyzing, and solving such problems. This book focuses on optimization problems involving uncertain parameters and covers the theoretical foundations and recent advances in areas where stochastic models are available.
In Lectures on Stochastic Programming: Modeling and Theory, Second Edition, the authors introduce new material to reflect recent developments in stochastic programming:
Audience
This book is intended for researchers working on theory and applications of optimization. It also is suitable as a text for advanced graduate courses in optimization.
