Decision Making with Dominance Constraints in Two-Stage Stochastic Integer Programming

Two-stage stochastic programming versions are regarded as beautiful instruments for making optimum judgements below uncertainty. often, optimality is formalized through using statistical parameters resembling the expectancy or the conditional worth in danger to the distributions of aim values. Uwe Gotzes analyzes an method of account for probability aversion in two-stage versions established upon partial orders at the set of actual random variables.

Example text

It is likely that the programmer rather than the other team members will find many of the errors found during this narration. In other words, the simple act of reading aloud a program to an audience seems to be a remarkably effective error-detection technique. 2. The program is analyzed with respect to a checklist of historically common programming errors (such a checklist is discussed in the next section). The moderator is responsible for ensuring that the discussions proceed along productive lines and that the participants focus their attention on finding errors, not correcting them.

Comparison and Boolean expressions mixed? 6. Comparisons of base-2 fractional values? 7. Operator precedence understood? 8. Compiler evaluation of Boolean expressions understood? 2 Inspection Error Checklist Summary, Part II Control Flow 1. Multiway branches exceeded? 2. Will each loop terminate? 3. Will program terminate? Input/Output 1. File attributes correct? 2. OPEN statements correct? 3. Format specification matches I/O statement? 4. Buffer size matches record size? 4. Any loop bypasses because of entry conditions?

Of course, a possible criticism of these statistics is that the human processes find only the “easy” errors (those that would be trivial to find with computer-based testing) and that the difficult, obscure, or tricky errors can be found only by computer-based testing. However, some testers using these techniques have found that the human processes tend to be more effective than the computer-based testing processes in finding certain types of errors, while the opposite is true for other types of errors.
