    Stochastic programming is one framework for taking the stochastic nature of the data into account when formulating and solving an optimization problem. In stochastic programming formulations, decisions are divided into those that need to be made \here and now" and those that can be made after the values of the random variables become known. This book is concerned with the third class of algorithms, from both a theoretical and practical point of view. It introduces stochastic local search algorithms as the choice when solving really hard problems. The book begins by accurately describing the different types of problems, and existing techniques for solving them.

    Ling Zhang, Bo Zhang, in Quotient Space Based Problem Solving, Abstract. Heuristic search is a graph search procedure which uses heuristic information from sources outside the graph. But for many known algorithms, the computational complexity depends on the precision of the heuristic estimates, and for lack of global view in the search process the exponential . $\begingroup$ Stochastic optimization is the bigger field of study where stochastic programming follows specific models $\endgroup$ – User Dec 9 '17 at $\begingroup$ Thanks @User, can you elaborate and maybe provide an example of what you mean by specific models in SP (and perhaps the more general concept explored in SO)?

Many people do not realize that a stochastic algorithm is nothi ng else than a random search, with hints by a chosen heuristic s (or m eta-heuristics) to guide the next potential solution to evaluate.

Motivation and a simple example. Suppose that, ∈ [,] is given, and we wish to compute ×.Stochastic computing performs this operation using probability instead of arithmetic. Specifically, suppose that there are two random, independent bit streams called stochastic numbers (i.e.

Adaptive Stochastic Optimization Techniques with Applications provides a single, convenient source for state-of-the-art information on optimization techniques used to solve problems with adaptive, dynamic, and stochastic features.

Presenting modern advances in static and dynamic optimization, decision analysis, intelligent systems, evolutionary programming. From stochastic search to dynamic programming. Stochastic search is itself an umbrella term that encompasses derivative-based search (stochastic gradient methods, stochastic approximation methods), and derivative-free search (which includes a lot of the work in the simulation-optimization community, and the black-box optimization community).

Computational Effort As can be seen above, it is difficult to evaluate the performance of stochastic algorithms, because, as Koza explains for genetic programming in (Koza, ): Since genetic programming is a probabilistic algorithm, not all runs are successful at yielding a solution to the problem by by: Mathematical optimization (alternatively spelled optimisation) or mathematical programming is the selection of a best element (with regard to some criterion) from some set of available alternatives.

Optimization problems of sorts arise in all quantitative disciplines from computer science and engineering to operations research and economics, and the development of solution methods. The disciplines of Computer Science and Operations Research have been linked since their origins and each have contributed to the dramatic advances of the other.

This volume examines some of the recent advances resulting from the confluence between these two technical communities.
