### Abstract

An algorithm incorporating the logarithmic barrier into the Benders decomposition technique is proposed for solving two-stage stochastic programs. Basic properties concerning the existence and uniqueness of the solution and the underlying path are studied. When applied to problems with a finite number of scenarios, the algorithm is shown to converge globally and to run in polynomial-time.

Introduction In this paper we propose an algorithm for solving two-stage stochastic programs, establish fundamental properties of the algorithm, and analyze the convergence. An example of a two-stage stochastic program is a production planning problem. The production and demand take place in the first and second periods, resp...
