**A Practical Guide to Robust Optimization**

by Bram L. Gorissen, Ihsan Yanıkoğlu, Dick den Hertog

**Publisher**: arXiv 2015**Number of pages**: 29

**Description**:

The aim of this paper is to help practitioners to understand robust optimization and to successfully apply it in practice. We provide a brief introduction to robust optimization, and also describe important do's and don'ts for using it in practice. We use many small examples to illustrate our discussions.
