Percentage Programming Approach for Portfolio Optimization


  • Silviu Bârza

    () (Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science Spiru Haret University, Bucharest, Romania)


In quantitative approach to decision making, a possible point of view for portfolio optimization is to model a portfolio in terms of a linear program. In this approach a linear programming model is in form of continuous non-negative variables instead of integer non-negative variables. In some earlier paper I introduced one type of combinatorial optimization model named percentage optimization model which it is presented in “Introduction”. Next I will present a linear model for portfolio and possible transformation which produce percentage programming form. For this step I will give a possible example. In the end I will discuss complexity for an algorithm schema to solve portfolio model in percentage programming form.
