    We study the dynamic programming approach to revenue management in the context of attended home delivery. We draw on results from dynamic programming theory for Markov decision problems to show that the underlying Bellman operator has a unique fixed point. We then provide a closed-form expression for the resulting fixed point and show that it admits a natural interpretation. Moreover, we also show that – under certain technical assumptions – the value function, which has a discrete domain and a continuous codomain, admits a continuous extension, which is a finite-valued, concave function of its state variables, at every time step. Furthermore, we derive results on the monotonicity of prices with respect to the number of orders placed in our setting. These results open the road for achieving scalable implementations of the proposed formulation, as it allows making informed choices of basis functions in an approximate dynamic programming context. We illustrate our findings on a low-dimensional and an industry-sized numerical example using real-world data, for which we derive an approximately optimal pricing policy based on our theoretical results.

    This paper deals with structured multi-agent optimization problems that involve coupled local and global decision variables. We propose an iterative distributed algorithm that explicitly accounts for this structure, and requires the agents to communicate only their tentative solutions for the global variables throughout iterations. Our approach extends to structured multi-agent optimization a proximal-based distributed methodology that has recently appeared in the literature. Privacy of local information is preserved and communication effort is reduced with respect to alternative distributed solutions where local and global optimization variables are grouped together and treated as a single decision vector. Multi-agent optimization problems with the considered structural properties appear in various contexts. In this paper, we apply our approach to energy management in a district where multiple buildings can communicate over a possibly time-varying network and aim at optimizing the use of shared and local resources. We illustrate the efficacy of the resulting distributed energy management algorithm by means of a detailed simulation study on a cooling problem.

    We address the optimization of a large scale multi-agent system where each agent has discrete and/or continuous decision variables that need to be set so as to optimize the sum of linear local cost functions, in presence of linear local and global constraints. The problem reduces to a Mixed Integer Linear Program (MILP) that is here addressed according to a decentralized iterative scheme based on dual decomposition, where each agent determines its decision vector by solving a smaller MILP involving its local cost function and constraint given some dual variable, whereas a central unit enforces the global coupling constraint by updating the dual variable based on the tentative primal solutions of all agents. An appropriate tightening of the coupling constraint through iterations allows to obtain a solution that is feasible for the original MILP. The proposed approach is inspired by a recent paper to the MILP approximate solution via dual decomposition and constraint tightening, but shows finite-time convergence to a feasible solution and provides sharper performance guarantees by means of an adaptive tightening. The two approaches are compared on a plug-in electric vehicles optimal charging problem.

We treat this problem as a multi-agent game, where vehicles/agents are heterogeneous since they are subject to possibly different constraints. Under the assumption that electricity price is affine in total demand, we show that, for any finite number of heterogeneous agents, the PEV charging control game admits a unique Nash equilibrium, which is the optimizer of an auxiliary minimization program. We are also able to quantify the asymptotic behaviour of the price of anarchy for this class of games. More precisely, we prove that if the parameters defining the constraints of each vehicle are drawn randomly from a given distribution, then, the value of the game converges almost surely to the optimum of the cooperative problem counterpart as the number of agents tends to infinity. In the case of a discrete probability distribution, we provide a systematic way to abstract agents in homogeneous groups and show that, as the number of agents tends to infinity, the value of the game tends to a deterministic quantity.

    We study distributed optimization in a cooperative multi-agent setting, where agents have to agree on the usage of shared resources and can communicate via a time-varying network to this purpose. Each agent has its own decision variables that should be set so as to minimize its individual objective function subject to local constraints. Resource sharing is modeled via coupling constraints that involve the non-positivity of the sum of agents’ individual functions, each one depending on the decision variables of one single agent. We propose a novel distributed algorithm to minimize the sum of the agents’ objective functions subject to both local and coupling constraints, where dual decomposition and proximal minimization are combined in an iterative scheme. Notably, privacy of information is guaranteed since only the dual optimization variables associated with the coupling constraints are exchanged by the agents. Under convexity assumptions, jointly with suitable connectivity properties of the communication network, we are able to prove that agents reach consensus to some optimal solution of the centralized dual problem counterpart, while primal variables converge to the set of optimizers of the centralized primal problem. The efficacy of the proposed approach is demonstrated on a plug-in electric vehicles charging problem.

    We discuss the computational complexity and feasibility properties of scenario sampling techniques for uncertain optimization programs. We propose an alternative way of dealing with a special class of stage-wise coupled programs and compare it with existing methods in the literature in terms of feasibility and computational complexity. We identify trade-offs between different methods depending on the problem structure and the desired probability of constraint satisfaction. To illustrate our results, an example from the area of approximate dynamic programming is considered.

    In this paper, we revisit the problem of computing viability sets for hybrid systems with nonlinear continuous dynamics and competing inputs. As usual in the literature, an iterative algorithm, based on the alternating application of a continuous and a discrete operator, is employed. Different cases, depending on whether the continuous evolution and the number of discrete transitions are finite or infinite, are considered. A complete characterization of the reach-avoid computation (involved in the continuous time calculation) is provided based on dynamic programming. Moreover, for a certain class of automata, we show convergence of the iterative process by using a constructive version of Tarski’s fixed point theorem, to determine the maximal fixed point of a monotone operator on a complete lattice of closed sets. The viability algorithm is applied to a benchmark example and to the problem of voltage stability for a single machine-load system in case of a line fault.

    We consider the problem of optimal charging of heterogeneous plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). We approach the problem as a multi-agent game in the presence of constraints and formulate an auxiliary minimization program whose solution is shown to be the unique Nash equilibrium of the PEV charging control game, for any finite number of possibly heterogeneous agents. Assuming that the parameters defining the constraints of each vehicle are drawn randomly from a given distribution, we show that, as the number of agents tends to infinity, the value of the game achieved by the Nash equilibrium and the social optimum of the cooperative counterpart of the problem under study coincide for almost any choice of the random heterogeneity parameters. To the best of our knowledge, this result quantifies for the first time the asymptotic behaviour of the price of anarchy for this class of games. A numerical investigation to support our result is also provided.

    Motivated by chance constrained optimisation problems that arise in stochastic model predictive control we investigate the connections between compression learning and scenario based optimisation. We discuss how compression learning provides powerful insight into a fundamental property that ensures optimal solutions to optimisation problems formulated using a finite number of realisations of the uncertainty will also be feasible for other, unseen instances of the uncertainty. This property, known as -consistency-, roughly translates to the requirement that a fixed cardinality subset of the scenarios used to generate the optimal solution are enough to encode all the information needed to reconstruct the solution; all remaining scenarios are in a sense redundant. Computationally the catch of course is it is impossible to know a-priori which of the scenarios will be essential and which not. Moreover, the -unnecessary- scenarios are not wasted even in theory: Their presence is what provides the confidence level with which we can make the statement that the solution is feasible for unseen uncertainty instances. We demonstrate this connection through chance constrained optimisation programs based on a combination of scenarios and robust optimisation.

    In this paper we consider uncertain nonlinear control-affine systems with probabilistic constraints. In particular, we investigate Stochastic Model Predictive Control (SMPC) strategies for nonlinear systems subject to chance constraints. The resulting non-convex chance constrained Finite Horizon Optimal Control Problems are computationally intractable in general and hence must be approximated. We propose an approximation scheme which is based on randomization and stems from recent theoretical developments on random non-convex programs. Since numerical solvers for non-convex optimization problems can typically only reach local optima, our method is designed to provide probabilistic guarantees for any local optimum inside a set of chosen complexity. Moreover, the proposed method comes with bounds on the (time) average closed-loop constraint violation when SMPC is applied in a receding horizon fashion. Our numerical example shows that the number of constraints of the proposed random non-convex program can be up to ten times smaller than those required by existing methods.

    In this paper, we revisit the problem of approximating viability sets for hybrid systems with nonlinear continuous dynamics and competing inputs. As usual in the literature, an iterative algorithm, based on the alternating application of a continuous and a discrete operator, is employed. Three different cases, based on whether the continuous evolution and the number of discrete transitions are finite or infinite, are considered. A complete characterization of the reach-avoid computation (involved in the continuous time calculation) is provided based entirely on optimal control. Moreover, we show convergence of the iterative process by using a constructive version of Tarski’s fixed point theorem, to determine the maximal fixed point of a monotone operator on a complete lattice of closed sets. To illustrate its performance, the viability algorithm is applied to investigate voltage stability for a single machine-load system in case of a line fault.
