Abstract:
We prove a central limit theorem for a class of additive processes that arise naturally in the
theory of finite horizon Markov decision problems. The main theorem generalizes a…

Selective Inference is the problem of testing hypotheses that are chosen or suggested by the
data. Inference after variable selection in highdimensional linear regression is a common
example of…

Proponents of robust optimization typically make three claims concerning the value of the robust approach. The first is that robust optimization models lead to solutions whose expected cost is close…


We consider customer service chat systems where customers can receive real time service from agents using an instant messaging application over the Internet. A unique feature of these systems is that…


This talk will present some recent advances of robust optimization in the operation of electric power systems. In particular, we will discuss twostage and multistage adaptive robust optimization…
