Robust Linear Optimization for avoiding diminishing returns

My engineering problem can be formulated as an LP as shown below \begin{align} \max_{\mathbf{x}}~~&\mathbf{a}^T\mathbf{x} \\ \mbox{s.t.}~~~&\mathbf{b}^T\mathbf{x} \leq B~~,~~\mathbf{1}^T\...

Difference between "Online Optimization" and "Stochastic Optimization"/"Robust Optimization"?

I just came across the notion of Online optimization (I got a look on Wikipedia page and some other webpages), but it was not enough for me and I am looking for a more elaborated comparison, namely in ...

Identify the specific parameters that reached their worst case in a robustly optimal solution

Assuming that we have a linear math model with $N$ bounded $[0,1]$ uncertain parameters $p_n$ within a typical polyhedral budget uncertainty set that says $\sum_{n}{p_n} \le \Gamma$. I want to find ...
