Description: This course will address basic models and algorithms for stochas- tic programming (optimization). Stochastic programming is a popular optimization tool that integrates statistics and operations research. Students are expected to have certain math background: basic calculus, basic linear algebra, and some mathematical analysis ability. Basic knowledge in optimization: linear pro- gramming, mathematical modeling. Basic knowledge in statistics: basic probability, statistical tests. Basic knowledge in a general purpose programming language is preferred, but not required. After the course, students are expected to understand and apply stochastic optimization tools:
