The increasing complexity of modern-day society has brought new problems involving very large numbers of variables and constraints. Due to the high dimensionality of the problems, it becomes difficult to obtain optimal solutions for such large scale programming problems. Fortunately, however, most of the large scale programming problems arising in application almost always have a special structure that can be exploited. One familiar structure is the block angular structure to the constraints that can be used to formulate the subproblems.
