Aggregation and disaggregation in convex network problems

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This article considers the error induced when the nodes of a large convex‚Äźcost network problem are aggregated to form a smaller problem. First, I formalize the notion of aggregation, focusing on disaggregation of the solution and construction of the cost functions of the aggregate problem. I then explore qualitatively the conditions under which the error is likely to be small, and show how to compute bounds on the error. Copyright © 1982 Wiley Periodicals, Inc., A Wiley Company
