Improving Shadow Price Information: Obtaining Relevant Shadow Prices from Problems with Decomposable Objectives Academic Article uri icon


  • Mathematical programming models can incorporate multiple objectives. Shadow prices in such models reflect a mixture of all of the objectives. A procedure is implemented to develop decomposed shadow prices applicable to the individual objectives. The procedure is demonstrated in a GAMS implementation for multiple objective and risk-related models.
