Automatica, November 2006, Volume 42, No. 11
There is already a long tradition of stochastic and robust optimization in energy and manufacturing engineering. Related models have also flourished in economics and finance (e.g. portfolio management, pricing of derivatives, investment under uncertainty, industrial organization). The deregulation of energy markets associated with the creation of markets for tradable emission permits (Clean air act in the US, Kyoto agreement in Europe) and more generally, the growing pressure for implementing environmentally conscious economic and management policies, have opened new domains of investigation and applied research situated at the crossroads of engineering, environmental economics and finance.
