Abstract : This paper gives an algorithm for Lshaped linear programs which arise naturally in optimal control problems with state constraints and stochastic linear programs (which can be represented in this form with an infinite number of linear constraints). The first section describes a cutting hyperplane algorithm which is shown to be equivalent to a partial decomposition algorithm of the dual program. The two last sections are devoted to applications of the cutting hyperplane algorithm to a linear optimal control problem and stochastic programming problems. (Author)
