Stochastic optimization and dynamic programming: applied to energy inventory management
— Inventory and financial assets management-related decisions are closely connected. One is often seeking for balance between instant profit and future gains. This course shows how dynamic programming can model similar issues.


This course will include stochastic optimization problem modeling and processing with dynamic programming and derivative techniques. 


Anyone aiming to discover stochastic optimization through dynamic programming. 


The speakers are Artelys consultants with in-depth expertise in industrial problem-solving and teaching at universities and schools.
