Risk aversion via excess probabilities in stochastic programs with mixed-integer recourse
We consider linear two-stage stochastic programs with mixed-integer recourse. Instead of basing the selection of an optimal first-stage solution on expected costs alone, we include into the objective a risk term reflecting the probability that a preselected cost threshold is exceeded. After we have put the resulting mean-risk model into perspective with stochastic dominance, we study further structural properties of the model and derive some basic stability results. In the algorithmic part of the paper, we propose a scenario decomposition method and report initial computational experience.
