**Algorithms for Reinforcement Learning**

by Csaba Szepesvari

**Publisher**: Morgan and Claypool Publishers 2009**ISBN/ASIN**: 1608454924**Number of pages**: 98

**Description**:

In this book, we focus on those algorithms of reinforcement learning that build on the powerful theory of dynamic programming. We give a fairly comprehensive catalog of learning problems, describe the core ideas, note a large number of state of the art algorithms, followed by the discussion of their theoretical properties and limitations.
