Reinforcement Learning and Optimal Control
by Dimitri P. Bertsekas
Publisher: Athena Scientific 2019
Number of pages: 276
The purpose of the book is to consider large and challenging multistage decision problems, which can be solved in principle by dynamic programming and optimal control, but their exact solution is computationally intractable. We discuss solution methods that rely on approximations to produce suboptimal policies with adequate performance.

We focus on those algorithms of reinforcement learning that build on the theory of dynamic programming. We give a comprehensive catalog of learning problems, describe the core ideas, followed by the discussion of their properties and limitations.
