Controlled Markov Processes and Viscosity Solutions

This ebook is meant as an advent to optimum stochastic keep an eye on for non-stop time Markov strategies and to the speculation of viscosity ideas. Stochastic keep an eye on difficulties are handled utilizing the dynamic programming method. The authors process stochastic keep watch over difficulties by way of the tactic of dynamic programming.

Example text

Is statistics a separate discipline in this sense? Are there purely statistical probiems which statistics purports to solve? If not, is it some kind of art, logic or technology applied to solve problems in other disciplines? A few decades ago, statistics was neither a frequently used nor a well understood word. Often it was viewed with skepticism. There were no professionals called statisticians except a few employed in government departments to collect and tabulate data needed for administrative purposes.

S. Pearson, Camb. Univ. Press. Appendix: Discussion A . l Chance and Chaos During the discussion after a talk I gave based on the material of this Chapter, a question was raised about chaos, a term used to describe "random like" phenomena, and its relation to the study of chance and uncertainty. My response was as follows. The word chance is used to describe random phenomena like drawing of numbers in a lottery. A sequence of numbers so produced do exhibit some order in the long run which can be explained by the calculus of probability.
