Scenario tree reduction for multistage stochastic programs. (English) Zbl 1171.90485
Summary: A framework for the reduction of scenario trees as inputs of (linear) multistage stochastic programs is provided such that optimal values and approximate solution sets remain close to each other. The argument is based on upper bounds of the \(L_r\)-distance and the filtration distance, and on quantitative stability results for multistage stochastic programs. The important difference from scenario reduction in two-stage models consists in incorporating the filtration distance. An algorithm is presented for selecting and removing nodes of a scenario tree such that a prescribed error tolerance is met. Some numerical experience is reported.
