摘要

We propose an approximate dynamic programming approach to the dynamic pricing problem for network revenue management. The approximate linear program (ALP) are semi-infinite linear programs and can be solved to any desired accuracy with a column generation algorithm. For the affine approximation under a linear independent demand model, we show that the ALP can be reformulated as a compact second order cone program (SOCP). The size of the SOCP formulation is linear in the number of resources, products, and periods. Numerical experiments show that solving the SOCP formulation is orders of magnitude faster and the ensuing pricing policies perform well.
