Constant Depth Decision Rules for Multistage Stochastic Convex Programs
In this paper, we introduce a new class of decision rules called Constant Depth Decision Rules (CDDRs) for Multistage Stochastic Convex Programs (MSCP) depending on a parame- ter Mi called the depth of the decision rules. ...

Cachaça is a genuine and traditional Brazilian distilled liquor and its history is closely linked to the country’s cultural heritage. However, the cachaça has been facing many difficulties in its recently started legitimization ...
Computer simulation of the stochastic transport equation
(EMAp - Escola de Matemática Aplicada, 2015)
In this article the numerical approximation of the stochastic transport equation is considered. We propose a new computational scheme for the effective simulation of the solutions of this equation. Results on the convergence ...
