Decomposition methods are used for solving large-scale linear and convex programming problems in order to save time by reducing the number of references to the external memory of a computer. Such methods convert the solution of the original problem into the solution of a series of problems of lower dimension (blocks). They are particularly efficient if the structure of each block permits the use of special, fast solution methods.
