TITLE: Ambiguous Joint Chance Constraints under Mean and Dispersion Information


We study joint chance constraints where the distribution of the uncertain parameters is only known to belong to an ambiguity set characterized by the mean and support of the uncertainties and by an upper bound on their dispersion. This setting gives rise to pessimistic (optimistic) ambiguous chance constraints, which require the corresponding classical chance constraints to be satisfied for every (for at least one) distribution in the ambiguity set. We provide tight conditions under which pessimistic and optimistic joint chance constraints are computationally tractable, and we show numerical results that illustrate the power of our tractability results.


Grani A. Hanasusanto is a postdoctoral researcher at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. He holds a PhD degree in Operations Research from Imperial College London and an MSc degree in Financial Engineering from the National University of Singapore. His research focuses on the design and analysis of tractable solution schemes for decision-making problems under uncertainty, with applications in operations management, energy systems, machine learning and data analytics.
