If we look back on section 3.5 we solved an infinite horizon problem. Such models can be approached in three ways: (1) transforming the problem to obtain an equivalent version with bounded rewards; (2) using a state-and-action-dependent discount factor, or (3) using bounding functions.

Let us apply this algorithm to our example. start decisions may be viewed in this perspective. this section indicates, we are looking for a linear programming formulation. This textbook provides a first course in stochastic programming suitable for students with a basic knowledge of linear programming, elementary analysis, and probability. By exploiting discontinuity properties of the maximal convolution it is possible to drastically reduce dimensionality in finite dynamic programs.

Originally introduced by Richard E.

The simple reformulation consists merely of, the role of the discount factor, is to bound the obj, expected discounted cost instead of the p, The motivation for introducing discounting is pick.

More recently, Levhari and Srinivasan [4] have also treated the Phelps problem for T = oo by means of the Bellman functional equations of dynamic programming, and have indicated a proof that concavity of U is sufficient for a maximum.
