Reinforcement Learning and Optimal Control
by

Publisher: Athena Scientific
Number of pages: 276

Description:
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.
