  • A stochastic mathematical program model with second-order cone complementarity constraints (SSOCMPCC) is introduced in this paper. It can be considered as a non-trivial extension of stochastic mathematical program with complementarity constraints, and could arise from a hard-to-handle class of bilivel second-order cone programming and inverse stochastic second-order cone programming. By introducing the Chen-Harker-Kanzow-Smale (CHKS) type function to replace the projection operator onto the second-order cone, a smoothing sample average approximation (SAA) method is proposed for solving the SSOCMPCC problem. It can be shown that with proper assumptions, as the sample size goes to infinity, any cluster point of global solutions of the smoothing SAA problem is a global solution of SSOCMPCC almost surely, and any cluster point of stationary points of the former problem is a C-stationary point of the latter problem almost surely. C-stationarity can be strengthened to M-stationarity with additional assumptions. Finally, we report a simple illustrative numerical test to demonstrate our theoretical results.
