### Why is it valid to derive a stochastic Euler equation?

Suppose we are given a stochastic dynamic programming problem. $$\max E\sum_{t=0}^T F(t,X_t, X_{t+1}(X_t,V_{t}),V_{t})$$ Where $V_t$ is a random variable, correlated possibly with $V_{t-1}$. In this ...

### Stochastic optimization vs stochastic programming

How should I think about the differences between stochastic optimization (SO) and stochastic programming (SP)? From Wikipedia, it seems that SO is a framework that uses randomness to solve a pre-...

### What is the role of the recourse variable in stochastic programming?

What is the role of recourse variable in stochastic programming? I often see two-stage stochastic programming problems with recourse, written as follows: Stage 1 \begin{equation} \begin{array}{...
