Decomposition Methods

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

58 Scopus citations


Two- and multistage stochastic programming problems have very large dimension and characteristic structures which are tractable by decomposition. We present cutting plane methods, nested decomposition methods, regularized decomposition methods, trust region methods, augmented Lagrangian methods, and splitting methods for convex stochastic programming problems.
