This chapter discusses what happens when, instead of minimizing an expectation, one minimizes the sample approximation obtained by getting a sample of independent events. The analysis relies on the theory of asymptotic laws (delta theorems) and its applications in stochastic programming. We extend the results to the case of constraints in expectation.
