Many sequential decision problems can be formulated as Markov decision processes (MDPs) where the optimal value function (or cost-to-go function) can be shown to satisfy a monotone structure in some or all of its dimensions. function R(V )(s) = V (s) ^(V )(s)as close to the zero function as possible. Value-function approximation is investigated for the solution via Dynamic Programming (DP) of continuous-state sequential N-stage decision problems, in which the reward to be maximized has an additive structure over a finite number of stages. Q-Learning is a specific algorithm. ber of possible values (e.g., when they are continuous), exact representations are no longer possible.

Differential dynamic programming (Sang Hoon Yeo). Though invisible to most users, they are essential for the operation of nearly all devices – from basic home appliances to aircraft and nuclear power plants. The philosophy of these methods is that if the true value function V can be well approximated by a flexible parametric function V for a small number of parameters k, we will be able to find a better approximation to Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications Learn.
