A survey on probabilistically constrained optimization problems

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • Probabilistically constrained optimization problems are an important class of stochastic programming problems with wide applications in finance, management and engineering planning. In this paper, we summarize some important solution methods including convex approximation, DC approach, scenario approach and integer programming approach. We also discuss some future research perspectives on the probabilistically constrained optimization problems.
