In the present paper, the approximate computation of a multistage stochastic programming problem (MSSPP) is studied. First, the MSSPP and its discretization are defined. Second, the expected loss caused by the usage of the “approximate” solution instead of the “exact” one is studied. Third, new results concerning approximate computation of expectations are presented. Finally, the main results of the paper—an upper bound of the expected loss and an estimate of the convergence rate of the expected loss—are stated.
