Abstract

The aim of this paper is to derive a method for solving a stochastic linear programming problem with Cauchy distribution. Assuming that the coefficients are distributed as Cauchy random variables, the stochastic linear programming is converted to a deterministic non-linear programming problem by a suitable transformation. Then an algorithm can be used to solve the resulting deterministic problem .A numerical example can be considered to illustrate the above methodology.
