Approximate DP has become the central focal point of this volume. Citation Statistics 6, Citations 0 ’08 ’11 ’14 ‘ This is a book that both packs quite a punch cojtrol offers plenty of bang for your buck.

The coverage is significantly expanded, refined, and brought up-to-date. I see the Preface for details: II, 4th Edition, Athena Scientific, A major expansion of the discussion of approximate DP neuro-dynamic programmingwhich allows the practical application of dynamic programming to large and complex problems. It should be viewed as the principal DP textbook and reference work at present.

It contains problems with perfect and imperfect information, as well as minimax control methods also known as worst-case control problems or games against p.bertsekaz. Showing of 8 references.

Each Chapter is peppered with several example problems, which illustrate the computational challenges and also correspond ximitri to benchmarks extensively used in the literature or pose major unanswered research questions. In conclusion the book is highly recommendable for an introductory course on dynamic programming and its applications.

The first volume is oriented towards modeling, conceptualization, and dimitir problems, but also includes a substantive introduction to infinite horizon problems that is suitable for classroom use. I rynamic II, 3rd Edition: The text contains many illustrations, worked-out examples, and exercises. Semantic Scholar estimates that this publication has 6, citations based on the available proframming.


The book is a rigorous yet highly readable and comprehensive source on all aspects relevant to DP: The new material aims to provide a unified treatment of several models, all of which lack the contractive structure that is characteristic of the discounted problems of P.bertsekax 1 and 2: Contains a substantial amount of new material, as well as a reorganization of old material. This new edition offers an expanded treatment of approximate dynamic programming, synthesizing a substantial and growing research literature on the topic.

It includes new material, and it is substantially revised and expanded it has more than doubled in size. See our FAQ for additional information. Volume II now numbers more than pages and is larger in size than Vol. He has been teaching the material included in this book in introductory graduate courses for more than forty years.

Still I think most readers will find there too at the very least one or two things to take back home with them. DenardoUriel G. Skip to search form Skip to main content. Topics Discussed in This Paper. References Publications referenced by this paper.

The main strengths of the book are the clarity of the exposition, the quality opttimal variety of the examples, and its coverage of the most recent advances.

This paper has 6, citations.

Undergraduate students should definitely first try the online lectures and decide if they are ready for the p.bertsejas. The first account of the emerging methodology of Monte Carlo linear algebra, which extends the approximate DP methodology to broadly applicable problems involving large-scale regression and systems of linear equations. The Discrete-Time Case Athena Scientific,which deals with the mathematical foundations of the subject, Neuro-Dynamic Programming Athena Scientific,which develops the fundamental theory for approximation methods in dynamic programming, and Introduction to Probability 2nd Edition, Athena Scientific,which provides the prerequisite probabilistic background.

Bertsekas’ book to be a very useful reference to which they will come back time and again to find an obscure reference to related work, use one of the examples in their own papers, and draw inspiration from the deep connections exposed between major techniques. It is a valuable reference for control theorists, mathematicians, and all those who use systems and control theory in their work.

Misprints are extremely few. He is the recipient of the A. The second volume is oriented towards mathematical analysis and computation, treats infinite horizon problems extensively, and provides an up-to-date account of approximate large-scale dynamic programming and reinforcement learning.
