New approaches to linear and nonlinear programming. Progress report, April 15, 1993--February 28, 1994 ( )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The project involves study of theoretical properties and computational performance of algorithms that solve linear and nonlinear programs, with emphasis on solving large problems, which is important in the energy area. For example, the safe and efficient distribution of electricity and identification of the state of an electrical network are large-scale nonlinearly constrained optimization problems. Other application areas involved include optimal trajectory calculations and optimal structural design
A probabilistic lower bound for two-stage stochastic programs by Stanford University ( )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the framework of Benders decomposition for two-stage stochastic linear programs, the authors estimate the coefficients and right-hand sides of the cutting planes using Monte Carlo sampling. The authors present a new theory for estimating a lower bound for the optimal objective value and they compare (using various test problems whose true optimal value is known) the predicted versus the observed rate of coverage of the optimal objective by the lower bound confidence interval
Solving linear programs under uncertainty, using decomposition, importance sampling and parallel processors. Progress report ( )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Planning under uncertainty is a fundamental problem of decision science where solution could advance man's ability to plan, schedule, design, and control complex situations. Goal is to develop efficient methods for solving an important class of planning problems, namely linear programs whose parameters (coefficients, right hand sides) are not known with certainty. The research concentrated on theoretical tasks of decomposition and importance sampling techniques, implementation, and software development issues and on applications. Research is continuing on use of parallel processors for solving stochastic programs
New approaches to linear and nonlinear programming. Progress report, January 1, 1988--December 31, 1988 ( )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report describes technical progress during the past twelve months on DOE Contract DE-FG-87ER25030 and requests support for the third year. The project involves study of the theoretical properties and computational performance of techniques that solve linear and nonlinear programs by means of nonlinear transformations. The group at the Systems Optimization Laboratory (SOL) were the first to recognize the connection between Karmarkar's projective method and the logarithmic barrier method. It is now generally recognized that essentially all interior-point methods for linear programming inspired by Karmarkar's method are closely related to application of Newton's method to a sequence of barrier functions. Each barrier function is defined from the objective function and a barrier term that is infinite along the boundary of the feasible region. As the weight on the barrier term is reduced to zero, the solution of the subproblem becomes closer to the solution of the original problem
New approaches to linear and nonlinear programming. Final technical report, January 1, 1987--December 31, 1989 ( )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the last twelve months, research has concentrated on barrier- function methods for linear programming (LP) and quadratic programming (QP). Some ground-work for the application of barrier methods to nonlinearly constrained problems has also begun. In our previous progress report we drew attention to the difficulty of developing robust implementations of barrier methods for LP. We have continued to refine both the primal algorithm and the dual algorithm. We still do not claim that the barrier algorithms are as robust as the simplex method; however, the dual algorithm has solved all the problems in our extensive test set. We have also gained some experience with using the algorithms to solve aircrew scheduling problems

A BASIC APPROACH TO THE EVALUATION OF RISKY INTERRELATED INVESTMENTS by Frederick S Hillier ( Book )
2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When evaluating proposals for capital investment, it often is necessary to consider interrelationships of various kinds between the proposed projects. The amount of risk associated with the investments also is a very important factor. The paper studies the problem of how to simultaneously take both considerations into account in order to determine the best overall combination of projects to approach. An approximate linear programming approach and an exact integer nonlinear programming algorithm for finding the best combination of investments are reviewed. The results of extensive computational experimentation with these solution procedures are reported and evaluated
