Controlled Markov Processes and Viscosity Solutions

This ebook is meant as an advent to optimum stochastic regulate for non-stop time Markov approaches and to the idea of viscosity recommendations. Stochastic regulate difficulties are taken care of utilizing the dynamic programming technique. The authors technique stochastic regulate difficulties by means of the strategy of dynamic programming.

2 Two independent variables: both continuous Here we were interested in whether height or age were both important in the prediction of deadspace. 4. 2. Note a peculiar feature of this output. ). This occurs because age and height are strongly correlated and highlights the importance of looking at the overall fit of a model. Dropping either will leave the other as a significant predictor in the model. 6995 for age and height) suggesting that height is a better predictor. 1. 93333 Deadspace | Coef.

This is further described in Appendix 2. 0631). The “pseudo R2” is described in Appendix 2 and is based on the proportionate drop in the log-likelihood. It is analogous to the R2 42 LOGISTIC REGRESSION term in linear regression which gives the proportion of variance accounted for by the model. This is less easy to interpret in the binary case, and it is suggested that one considers only the rough magnitude of the pseudo R2. 0249 implies that the model does not fit particularly well since only a small proportion of the variance is accounted for.

A common alternative is when the error increases as one of the x variables increases, so one way of checking this assumption would be to plot the residuals, ei against each of the independent variables and also against the fitted values. If the model were correct one would expect to see the scatter of residuals evenly spread about the horizontal axis and not showing any pattern. e. the scatter gets larger as the x variable gets larger. This is often also associated with nonlinearity as well, and so attempts at transforming the x variable may resolve the issue.
