Iterative Aggregation

  • Vladimir Tsurkov
Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 51)


The proposed approach constructs an iterative process, at every step of which a macroproblem is solved that is simpler than the original problem because of its lower dimension. Aggregation weights are then updated, and the procedure passes to the next step. In Section 1, this method is based on the input—output model. The generalizing monograph [4] presents the description of an efficient application of various modifications of iterative aggregation to real models in economics.
