Expected residual minimization method for stochastic linear complementarity problems. (English) Zbl 1162.90527
Summary: This paper presents a new formulation for the stochastic linear complementarity problem (SLCP), which aims at minimizing an expected residual defined by an NCP function. We generate observations by the quasi-Monte Carlo methods and prove that every accumulation point of minimizers of discrete approximation problems is a minimum expected residual solution of the SLCP. We show that a sufficient condition for the existence of a solution to the expected residual minimization (ERM) problem and its discrete approximations is that there is an observation omega i such that the coefficient matrix M(omega i ) is an R 0 matrix. Furthermore, we show that, for a class of problems with fixed coefficient matrices, the ERM problem becomes continuously differentiable and can be solved without using discrete approximation. Preliminary numerical results on a refinery production problem indicate that a solution of the new formulation is desirable.
