In this paper, we present bounds for multi-horizon stochastic optimization problems, a class of problems relevant in many industry-life applications tipically involving strategic and operational decisions on two dierent time scales. After providing three general mathematical formulations of a multi-horizon stochastic program, we extend the denition of the traditional Expected Value problem and Wait-and-See problem from stochastic programming in a multi-horizon framework.

Abstract

In this paper, we present bounds for multi-horizon stochastic optimization problems, a class of problems relevant in many industry-life applications tipically involving strategic and operational decisions on two dierent time scales. After providing three general mathematical formulations of a multi-horizon stochastic program, we extend the denition of the traditional Expected Value problem and Wait-and-See problem from stochastic programming in a multi-horizon framework. New measures are introduced allowing to quantify the im- portance of the uncertainty at both strategic and operational levels. Relations among the solution approaches are then determined and chain of inequalities provided. Numerical experiments based on an energy planning application are finally presented.
